About this Riding
If there is one riding where the Liberals could feel the political fallout from the purchase of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project, it’s in Burnaby North–Seymour, where the pipeline meets the sea. Opposition to the pipeline helped the B.C. New Democrats win the area’s two Burnaby seats in 2017 and could give the federal New Democrats an issue to rally around. They have a familiar name on the ballot in Svend Robinson, who was the NDP MP for the Burnaby-portion of the riding from 1979 to 2004. The Conservatives can’t be ruled out, either — if Robinson and the Liberals’ Terry Beech split the vote, the Conservatives could win with only a modest improvement over their 2015 performance.
