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.

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.
