BC NDP candidate and incumbent John Horgan took the island district of Juan de Fuca in 2009 with 57 per cent of the vote, a strong showing. Horgan's been an MLA since 2005, and is currently the Opposition house leader. Horgan ran for the provincial NDP leadership in early 2011, but lost in a middle round of voting.
Horgan will run again this May. The BC Liberal candidate for the district is Kerrie Reay, a Sooke councillor and project manager at BC Corrections headquarters in Victoria.
