Fry first won the riding back in 1993, when she defeated Conservative leader Kim Campbell, ending her 132-day tenure as prime minister.

It marked just the third time a sitting prime minister was defeated in their riding.

Fry told Global News back in 2019 that a key factor in her 1993 win was that Campbell wasn’t around to fight her for the seat.
