The Green Party won its first ever Vancouver city council seat in Saturday's municipal election.

Adriane Carr narrowly won the city's 10th council seat, beating out Coalition of Progressive Electors candidate Ellen Woodsworth by just 91 votes.

"It was a close race and I am very excited that voters across the spectrum are behind me. I plan to be a champion for sustainable neighbourhoods and a voice to hold council accountable to the citizens of Vancouver," said Carr.

"This was certainly a team effort where getting out every single vote made the difference. I thank the many wonderful people who helped me to win this race."

Carr thanked voters following her wn on Saturday, and said many factors contributed to the victory.
