Get to know this Electoral District:
Victoria-Swan Lake was created in 2009, when the previous Victoria-Hillside district was redrawn. It encompasses the northern part of the City of Victoria and the southern part of Saanich.
Regardless of changing names and boundaries, the NDP’s Rob Fleming has represented the area since 2005. Incumbent Fleming is running again in this year’s election and, if the previous result is any indication, he could be tough to beat in 2017.
He won 2013 with 12,350 votes, more than his two challengers combined. The Green Party’s Spencer Alexander Malthouse was second with 5,260 and Liberal Christina Bates was third with 5,055.
