Spencer Chandra-Herbert of the BC NDP Party is projected to win Vancouver-West End this election.
While this is the smallest geographical riding in the province, it is also one the BC NDP can count on.
Chandra-Herbert has represented the community since 2008.
Vancouver-West End stretches from English Bay to the edge of Stanley Park, and the LGBTQ+ community is essential to its fabric.
Housing affordability and childcare continue to be pivotal issues.
Chandra Herbert has used his own popularity and community connection to make the riding a safe one for his party.
But it hasn’t always been like that. Lorne Mayencourt held the seat in 2001 and 2005 for the BC Liberals when it was called Vancouver-Burrard.
The Liberals nominated Jon Ellacott, a construction site superintendent.
