Colin Hansen has held this affluent district for the BC Liberals since 1996. He has consistently won by wide margins, more than tripling the votes of his closest competitors in the last three elections, but announced in Sept. 2012 he would not run again.

This May's candidates include Andrew Wilkinson for the BC Liberals. Wilkinson is a lawyer, physician, and a former deputy minister of the B.C. Ministry of Economic Development.

Farm Folk/City Folk executive director Nicholas Scapillati is running for the BC NDP. T

The BC Green candidate is Damian Kettlewell, a third time candidate for the party. In 2005, Kettlewell earned 15 per cent of the Vancouver-Point Grey vote, and campaigned in a station wagon powered by waste vegetable oil.

Bill Clarke is a non-affiliated candidate, as the BC Conservative Party misfiled the paperwork for his candidacy. Clarke served four terms as MP for Vancouver Quadra, starting in 1972.
