B.C. election 2020: Langford-Juan de Fuca results

BC NDP leader John Horgan has once again won his seat in Langford-Juan de Fuca.

The riding is relatively new, having been created in the 2015 redistricting from parts of the old Juan de Fuca district.

But the region is historically friendly territory for the New Democrats, and area voters have elected an NDP MLA in every election but one since 1991.

Horgan was elected in 2017 with close to 53 per cent of the vote and has held some version of the seat since 2005.

The BC Liberals nominated small business owner and WestShore Chamber of Commerce board member Kelly Darwin.
