I can't see the BC Liberals losing this one unless the NDP wins the election by a huge margin. Given that they are the primary opposition to a government that has been in power for 16 years and are still polling lower than their result from the previous election that they lost, I can't see them winning at all. The Liberals have a strong and experienced candidate in Sam Sullivan. Boundary changes are favourable to the NDP but very minor.

I just can?t see this riding switching even with the boundary changes.

Vancouver False-Creek is a safe BC Liberal seat - one of only three within the City of Vancouver - Van-Quilchena and Van-Langara being the 2 others.
Most of the centre-right leaning Coal Harbour residential area was already contained within the riding of Vancouver-West End prior to the recent boundary changes.
The recent boundary changes to Vancouver-False Creek comprised the removal of the portion west of Burrard Street to Jervis Street and north of West Georgia Street. This area includes office buildings in the downtown CBD, hotels, the Trade and Convention Centre as well as some residential towers. IOW, it is a Coal Harbour transition zone that only contained 3 polling stations.
Transposed 0133 results based upon riding boundary change:
BC Liberal: 51.5%
BC NDP: 37.7%
BC Green: 9.1%
Back in 2013, the BC NDP ran a stellar candidate here in hi-tech entrepreneur Matt Toner. After the 2013 election, Toner defected over to the BC Greens and is now their deputy leader.
One should also look at the underlying federal voting patterns in Vancouver-False Creek. In the past 3 federal elections, the vast majority of polling stations contained within the provincial boundaries of Vancouver-False Creek saw federal Liberal-federal CPC battles with the NDP relegated to 3rd place. Completely different story in the neighbouring provincial riding of Vancouver-West End, which is lower-income with majority renters.
Again, Vancouver-False Creek should be considered a safe BC Liberal seat.

One thing to keep in mind about this riding and it is the one that I vote in is that the boundaries have been changes.
Coal Harbour - which went heavily Liberal in the last election is no longer in the riding. It is now part of Vancouver West End.
Sam at times is invisible - very little communication from him.
To me it is toss up and is likely to go as the Province goes.

Morgane is getting a lot of press for running to be the first trans MLA to win in BC. She's a strong candidate, and her status gives her kind of star status. Can she make up more than 15% and beat Sullivan? My heart is with her, but my head is saying the safe wager is to bet on the Liberals to hold on here.
