Don Davies, the incumbent NDP MP, has been re-elected in his Vancouver Kingsway riding, defeating, among others, a high-profile Liberal candidate making her foray into politics.

Communist - Kimball Cariou

NDP-New Democratic Party - Don Davies (INCUMBENT)

ML - Donna Petersen

Conservative - Helen Quan

Liberal - Tamara Taggart

Green Party - Lawrence Taylor

People's Party - Ian Torn

Former CTV news anchor Tamara Taggart ran for the Liberals in Vancouver-Kingsway riding, shifting her career after 30 years in media to national politics. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau kicked off the campaign alongside Taggart in mid-September, when she cited climate change, housing and affordability as the main talking points in her riding.

Vancouver-Kingsway, however, has a long history of electing NDP candidates.

The NDP has now won 13 of the 19 elections held since the riding was formed in 1953, although voters once re-elected a Liberal, David Emerson, who promptly crossed the floor to become a Tory cabinet minister.

Davies has served Vancouver-Kingsway since 2008. His victory was declared shortly before 9 p.m. Monday, and he entered the room to Queen's "We Will Rock You."
