The 2018 civic election in Vancouver has made local history with women accounting for a vast majority of the members of the new City Council, which entails 10 city councillors and one mayor. The Daily Hive, Oct 21, 2018

Following the results of Saturday’s tight and tense civic election, Vancouverites took to social media to voice concerns over a lack of diversity at city hall, often under the hashtag #VancouverSoWhite. The Star Vancouver, Oct 22, 2018
