B.C. election 2020: Vancouver-Kingsway results

Adrian Dix of the BC NDP is projected to win in the riding of Vancouver-Kingsway.

This riding is a story of redemption.

A former political staffer who became a politician and rose through the ranks of the BC New Democratic Party to reach the top as leader. But when it was his time in the spotlight, he sputtered and lost a race that he was highly favoured to win.

Cue the comeback: a seat at the cabinet table as health minister, guiding the province through a global pandemic.
