At a glance

The BC NDP's Harry Lali took the 2009 election by nearly 900 votes, winning 49.1 per cent of the vote. The runner-up, BC Liberal Ella Brown, took 42.7 per cent.

Fraser-Nicola was created in 2009 and largely replaced the Yale-Lillooet electoral district. That district had previously gone to Lali in 2005, but since 1991 swung back and forth between the BC NDP and the BC Liberals. Lali has won every election he's run in since 1991, though he didn't run in 2001. He was a cabinet minister in the late '90s and has run for NDP leadership.

Lali will run again this May. Other candidates include: BC Liberal Jackie Tegart, an Ashcroft councillor and the former head of BC School Trustees.

Michael Beauclair, a log-scaler, is the BC Conservative candidate.

President of the Ashcroft-based Winding Rivers Arts & Performance Society, John Kidder, is running for the BC Greens. Kidder helped form the party in 1983 and worked on Adriane Carr's first campaign.
