STEVESTON-RICHMOND-EAST

Welcome to Vancity Buzz’s Election 2015 coverage for Metro Vancouver. Refresh this post on October 19 for up-to-date information for the Steveston-Richmond East riding.

Steveston-Richmond East

ELECTS JOE PESCHISOLIDO, LIBERAL

This new riding redistributes some of the past Delta riding, including the Steveston neighbourhood and everywhere east of No. 3 road. This area has been largely conservative for the past several decades, but new borders may boost the Liberal vote. No incumbents are running in the race.

Here is a map of the district:
