At a glance

This diverse district has been represented by BC Liberal candidates for the last three election cycles. The race, however, has tightened over time. BC Liberal Wally Oppal won by just over 1,000 votes in 2005, and Kash Heed, the current MLA, won by under 750 votes in 2009.

This May, former Vancouver councillor Suzanne Anton runs for the BC Liberals in Vancouver-Fraserview. Anton originally ran for the party nomination in Vancouver-Quilchena, but lost to former party president Andrew Wilkinson.

Gabriel Yiu is the candidate for the BC NDP. Yiu owns three retail shops and is a media commentator.

The BC Green candidate is Stuart Mackinnon, a teacher at Killarney Secondary and former Vancouver Park Board commissioner.

Realtor Rajiv Pendey is the BC Conservative.

There was a slight adjustment to the district's boundaries in 2008 as part of a provincial boundary redistribution, when four per cent of Vancouver-Kingsway was added.
