Candidates named so far include former Port Moody Mayor Joe Trasolini, representing the New Democratic Party, and Dennis Marsden, a credit union manager and former Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce president, who will be representing the B.C. Liberals.

The standard-bearer for the B.C. Conservative Party is Christine Clark, is director and chair of advocacy for the Canadian Skin Care Alliance.
