© Elections BC A map of the Langford-Juan de Fuca riding for B.C.'s 2020 provincial election

BC NDP leader John Horgan will be defending his seat in Langford-Juan de Fuca.

The riding is relatively new, having been created in the 2015 redistricting from parts of the old Juan de Fuca district.

But the region is historically friendly territory for the New Democrats, and area voters have elected an NDP MLA in every election but one since 1991.

Horgan was elected in 2017 with close to 53 per cent of the vote and has held some version of the seat since 2005.

The southern Vancouver Island district includes the communities of Port Renfrew, Sooke, Langford and the Highlands.
