The Conservative Party has announced that John Reynolds is their candidate for the West Vancouver – Sunshine Coast riding. Reynolds, 63, has been an MP for West Vancouver since 1990 and has served as chair of the Conservative Party’s 2006 federal election campaign. During his commuting, he keeps two phones on his person. He makes several key announcements on these phones during this time. The party has not yet released a candidate profile for Reynolds, but a website listing his credentials is available here.
Despite his upcoming retirement from active politics, Reynolds has said that he plans to continue working with the party and will be an advisor to Conservative leader Stephen Harper. As an MP, Reynolds has long been known for his support of the Conservative Party and has served as their national campaign chair. He has been in politics since the 1970s, and has fought tirelessly to make Canada a great place to live and work.
During his long political career, Reynolds has served as a legislator in five parties. He first became a Progressive Conservative MP in 1972, but left the party after the leadership changed. After that, he became a radio talk show host. In 1983, he joined the Social Credit Party and won the West Vancouver – Howe Sound riding. He then ran for the leadership of the party in 1986, but was beaten by Bill Vander Zalm. He has served as the Speaker of the B.C. legislature twice.
In a judicial recount, incumbent BC Liberal MLA Jordan Sturdy has been confirmed as the winner of the West Vancouver Sea to Sky riding. The race was close, and an unprecedented number of mail-in ballots had been cast, but the incumbent MLA managed to hold off the challenge from Green Party candidate Jeremy Valeriote. On election night, Sturdy led Valeriote by just over seven hundred votes. However, as the mail-in ballots started to come in, his lead began to diminish. In the end, Sturdy gained over seven thousand votes to Jeremy’s nine hundred and eighty-nine votes.
Jordan Sturdy was first elected to the legislature for the West Vancouver-Sea to Sky riding in May 2013, and was re-elected for a second term on May 9, 2017. Previously, he served as Mayor of Pemberton, BC. He is a member of the Canadian Conservation Union and served on its board of directors. Jordan Sturdy has a background in the environmental sector, including a history of activism.
Despite the closeness of the election results, Sturdy and Valeriote will wait until the recount has been completed before making a decision on a potential change in government. Valeriote is an excellent candidate, and his support for Jeremy Valeriote is well-deserved. However, the close race shows that the majority of the electorate has high hopes for the future.
Blair Wilson, a Chartered Accountant, was first elected to the House of Commons as a Liberal in the 2006 federal election. However, in 2008, he finished far behind John Weston, a former Liberal MP, and won the riding by less than a thousand votes. After the scandal erupted over allegations of improper campaign spending, Wilson quit the Liberal caucus and ran for the seat as an Independent. His candidacy was challenged and he ended up being defeated by Conservative John Weston.
Blair Wilson is a Chartered Accountant who has worked for Ernst and Young in Vancouver before opening his own accounting firm in North Vancouver. Aside from being a CA, Wilson owns a popular restaurant in Vancouver, Wilson’s Steakhouse, located near the Terry Fox Memorial on Beatty Street. He was born and raised in West Vancouver and is passionate about issues facing the residents of his district. Wilson holds a bachelor’s degree in Political Science from the University of Victoria and a Chartered Accountants designation from the Institute of Chartered Accountants of British Columbia.
While Wilson has achieved a national profile, his local roots are deeply rooted. Local supporters call him a “true believer”.
In the third federal election in B.C., the Liberal Party has claimed West Vancouver-Sunshine Coast-Sea to Sky. The riding has been held by the Liberal Party for three consecutive years. Elections Canada has released preliminary results. The Liberal incumbent, Patrick Weiler, won with nearly 35 percent of the vote over Conservative John Weston’s 30 percent. The NDP candidate, Avi Lewis, garnered just over 14 percent of the vote, but is still in a strong position to win the riding.
The former MP, who will be returning to Ottawa after the election, has no firm plans to enter politics again. He’s concentrating on reconnecting with Sunshine Coast officials, building affordable housing and improving infrastructure. He also plans to pick up on items that were not passed before the summer election. He’s also promising to modernize the Environmental Protection Act, introduce new disability benefits and reform criminal justice. Weston also praised the efforts of volunteers who knocked on three times as many doors as the last Conservative candidate.
In the 2019 election, the Green Party earned 14,579 ballots, or 22.4% of the popular vote. The NDP came in third place with 9,027 votes, or 13.9% of the electorate. Both candidates attended debates. Weiler was the only NDP candidate to attend every debate in the riding. He said the riding needs more transit for people who live in the area.

Blair Wilson’s Green Party
Former Liberal MP Blair Wilson made history last week when he was elected to the House of Commons in his riding of West Vancouver. The Vancouver-area MP was forced to quit the Liberal party after spending irregularities were discovered. The smear campaign was quickly debunked, and Elections Canada cleared Wilson of any wrongdoing. But there are some questions about Wilson’s record.
As the Liberal candidate, Wilson was the front-runner in the race to represent West Vancouver. He was backed by his supporters as he entered the Hollyburn Country Club for his campaign party. Wilson congratulated the other candidates and thanked them for a well-run campaign. The victory party ended at 10 p.m. on election night. The Conservatives cut funding to not-for-profits and businesses in the riding, and the Green Party was left to pick up the pieces.
Wilson also lost a lawsuit against the newspaper, claiming that the paper published an article that exposed Wilson’s personal finances. The Province has defended Wilson’s reputation by clearing him of most defamation allegations, but was found guilty of one paragraph that accused him of seeking a loan from his mother-in-law on her deathbed. This is one of the reasons Wilson is contemplating a defamation lawsuit against The Province.
The Liberals and Conservatives have been trading off the riding for the last two decades. The Liberal platform includes a target of net zero emissions by 2050. The riding has almost 8,000 registered voters. A combination of both parties can take the riding in 2019.
The Sunshine Coast and West Vancouver ridings have seen substantial growth over the past few years. Since the last election, the number of registered voters in these areas increased by 1,625″. The number of registered voters in West Vancouver increased by 861 over the same period. With this kind of growth, the boundary could easily be redrawn in a few years. The Conservatives are hoping to make gains in these ridings.
In the past, the Liberals have won the West Vancouver-Sunshine Coast-Sea to Sky country riding for three consecutive elections, while the NPD hasn’t won a federal election since 1997. In 2008, Weston represented the district but was defeated in the 2015 election by Pamela Goldsmith-Jones, who has since been replaced by Weiler. Weiler, an environmental lawyer, cited climate change as a reason for entering politics.
