Shirley Bond of the BC Liberals is projected to win yet again in Prince George-Valemount.
Bond has held the riding, and its predecessor, Prince George-Mount Robson, since 2001. The NDP won it last in 1996.
Bond held multiple cabinet portfolios during the last BC Liberal government, including justice, transportation and education.
The BC NDP nominated 21-year-old University of Northern B.C. student Laura Parent.
The city centre is friendlier territory for the NDP, while Prince George’s outskirts and southern suburbs trend heavily Liberal.
