While votes continue to be tallied in Canada’s 44th federal election, many ridings have already been determined or projected, including on Vancouver Island.
Like in 2019, Vancouver Island is seeing little change save the Nanaimo-Ladysmith riding where Green incumbent MP Paul Manly has dropped to third and now, Conservative MP Tamara Kronis is holding the lead and NDP Lisa Marie Barron is leading behind.
