Working class blue collar riding with decades of history voting NDP + a hugely popular incumbent with universal name recognition. Add to that the Liberals still don't have a candidate. Mike Farnworth will win with 50% to 60% of the vote.

Who knows what the natural partisan tilt of this district is - Mike Farnworth is a moderate and extremely popular MLA with cross-party appeal. Had the NDP chosen him in 2011, he'd probably be the premier today.

Former BCNDP leadership candidate Mike Farnsworth is running again here. PoCo - as its affectionately known - is not going BC Liberal anytime soon, but look for a more contested race when Mike retires.

This is pretty much Mike Farnworth's seat until he retires. This used to be more competitive when Burke Mountain was part of the seat but Farnworth is too well known and is easily a minister if John Horgan becomes Premier.
