BC Liberal Stephanie Cadieux has been reelected in Surrey South, Global News projects.
The riding is relatively new, created from parts of Surrey-Cloverdale and Surrey-Panorama in the 2015 seat redistribution.
While the seat is new, the area has historically favoured the BC Liberals.
Cadieux, minister of children and family development in Christy Clark’s government, won by almost 4,800 votes at the riding’s first contest in 2017.
The area has experienced rapid population growth in recent years, and the subsequent pressure on schools has been an election issue in the past.
Former Surrey mayoral candidate Pauline Greaves ran for the BC NDP.
