Federal Election 2015: New Westminster—Burnaby riding results
Summary: One of the many ridings in this area of Metro Vancouver with heavily changed boundaries, NDP MP Peter Julian is seeking his 5th term in New Westminster-Burnaby.
Boundaries: The riding contains all of the historic city of New Westminster, including the Queensborough neighbourhood. It also includes Burnaby’s Edmonds neighbourhood, and the surrounding areas south of Burnaby Lake.
Last Election: Peter Julian defeated his Conservative challenger, former MP Paul Forseth, by 13.8 per cent.
Redistribution has given this riding all of New Westminster and removed southwest Burnaby, making it slightly more NDP-friendly in process.
History: Aside from when Forseth held the riding between 1993 and 2004, an NDP MP has held New Westminster since 1972. Provincially, New Westminster has elected NDP MLAs in all but one election since the 1960s.
Conservative: Chloé Ellis, general manager of a hair salon
NDP: Peter Julian, MP since 2004
Liberal: Sasha Ramnarine, associate lawyer
Green: Kyle Routledge
Marxist-Leninist: Joseph Theriault
Libertarian: Rex Brocki
