Peace River North is among the safest BC Liberal seats in British Columbia.
So it’s no surprise the Liberals are projected to keep this seat. Liberal incumbent Dan Davies appears to have won this riding again.
The NDP’s predecessor, the Cooperative Commonwealth Federation, won the seat’s previous version in 1945, but right-leaning parties have taken it in every election since then.
Davies won the seat in 2017 with a commanding 66.27 per cent, while the NDP came a distant third with less than seven per cent of the vote.
BC Conservative Party leader Trevor Bolin is running in this riding.
The NDP nominated ministerial assistant Danielle Monroe.
Peace River North is the more rural of B.C.’s two ridings in the Peace region, and includes the towns of Fort St. John and Fort Nelson.
- BC Liberals: Dan Davies
- BC NDP: Danielle Monroe
- BC Conservatives: Trevor Bolin
