Any idea about potential candidates on the South Island in either this year or next year's general election? Here are some of my thoughts:
Incumbent Mitzi Dean (NDP) is very likely running again
BC Liberal: Probably not Barb Desjardins again. Maybe someone from Colwood or Metchosin?
NDP: Mitzi Dean
Langford-Juan de Fuca
Incumbent John Horgan (NDP) is running again
BC Liberal: ? (Could this finally be Stew Young's time to risk it, maybe in anticipation of this potentially being Horgan's last term, therefore opening up 2025 for him)
NDP: John Horgan
Oak Bay-Gordon Head
Incumbent Andrew Weaver (Independent, former Green) retiring.
BC Liberal: Roxanne Helme (Nominated)
NDP: ? (Marianne Alto?)
Incumbent Adam Olsen (Green) is running again
BC Liberal: Stephen Roberts again? I know he's still president of the riding assocation. I could also see a current or former municipal politician, such as Carl Jensen or Steve Price, going for it
Green: Adam Olsen
NDP: Gary Holman has maintained his community presence, but may be heading towards retirement. Maybe Central Saanich councillor Zeb King? (known NDPer)
Incumbent Lana Popham (NDP) is running again
BC Liberal: David Calder again?
NDP: Lana Popham
Incumbent Carole James (NDP) retiring
BC Liberal: ?
Green: ? (Maybe Kalen Harris again? Racelle Kooy? Or even Lisa Helps?)
Could Ben Isitt take a run here? For the NDP (his traditional home, but now seems quite unlikely)? The Greens? Maybe even the nascent Eco-Socialists?)
Incumbent Rob Fleming (NDP) presumed to be running again
BC Liberal: ?
Green: ? (Or maybe Racelle Kooy here? Not sure where she lives)
NDP: Presumed to be Rob Fleming?
