In Vancouver-Fraserview Liberal incumbent Suzanne Anton is seeking re-election, up against NDP candidate George Chow and Green candidate Eric Kolotlyk.
Anton served as a Vancouver City Councillor before being appointed Attorney General for Christy Clark’s government, a position she has held since 2013.
She faces another former Vancouver City Councillor in Chow, who plays a very active role in the city’s Chinese community as chair of the Chinese Cultural Centre of Greater Vancouver.
The riding promises to be a close one, having been decided by 1200 votes or fewer in last five elections, with a difference of just 470 votes in 2013.
However, it’s also a dominant Liberal riding – the last time the NDP claimed the territory was back in 1996.
Key issues in the area include housing, jobs, and education, with the latter being a particularly hot topic thanks to a protracted battle between the city and the Vancouver School Board over budget cuts back in October of last year.
Whether sentiment around those issues will lead to the ousting of a high-profile candidate like Anton still remains to be seen.
But with polls picking up, we’ll be keeping a close eye on this riding over the course of the night.
