This riding takes parts from the previous ridings of Burnaby-New Westminster (which elected NDP MP Peter Julian by 13.8 per cent in 2011) and Burnaby-Douglas (which elected the Stewart by 2 per cent in 2011). Stewart chose to run here, rather than the new Burnaby North-Seymour riding, which is significantly more right-leaning.
