Fight­ing for votes in the burbs.

Vancouver Magazine - - Featuring -

Maple Ridge–Pitt Mead­ows

Doug Bing won for the Lib­er­als in 2013 by only 620 votes. He faces the NDP’s Lisa Beare, a popular school trustee in a part of the suburbs where de­vel­op­ment, home­less­ness, drug over­dose deaths and traf­fic may­hem are on the rise. Ex­pect a fierce bat­tle.

Vancouver–Fraserview

With its wind­ing streets and sin­gle­fam­ily homes, it’s a lit­tle slice of the suburbs right here in the city. Suzanne An­ton won it for the Lib­er­als in 2013 by only 546 votes. Popular former city coun­cil­lor Ge­orge Chow is try­ing to edge her out for the NDP.

Co­quit­lam–Mail­lardville

Former city coun­cil­lor Selina Robinson won this rid­ing for the NDP by only 41 votes, af­ter a re­count. The Lib­er­als will be fight­ing hard to take it back with small-busi­ness owner Steve Kim.
