Vancouver-False Creek is among the top five Liberal ridings the BC NDP would like to steal on Oct. 24.
In the way is Sam Sullivan, the former Vancouver mayor, who will be the BC Liberal candidate again.
Sullivan has played a minor role in opposition since leader Andrew Wilkinson took over the party. He remains well-known in his riding and has won the seat in both 2013 and 2017.
He won by just 560 votes in 2017, though, over NDP candidate Morgane Oger. It was a step back, considering he’d won by 2,247 votes in 2013.
The NDP have nominated Brenda Bailey, the head of DigiBC.
- BC Liberals: Sam Sullivan
- BC NDP: Brenda Bailey
- BC Greens: Maayan Kreitzman
- Libertarian: Naomi Chocyk
- Conservative: Erik Gretland
