In 2019, Shin won the riding with just 31 per cent of the vote, defeating Zarillo by 143 votes.

Liberal Sara Badiei finished third with 29 per cent of the vote.

The Metro Vancouver riding was on the radar of all three major parties during the campaign, as it was one of the closest in Canada in 2019.

Both Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau and NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh visited the riding during the election campaign to boost local support.

The seat had previously been held by the NDP’s Fin Donnelly, who decided not to run again after 10 years in office.
