Vancouver-Point Grey is a provincial electoral district for the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia, Canada. It first appeared on the hustings in the general election of 1933. It and the other new Vancouver ridings in this year, Vancouver-Burrard, Vancouver Centre and Vancouver East, were all created from the old Vancouver City riding, which was a six-member seat. Vancouver-Point Grey was a three-member seat, while the other three Vancouver ridings were only two members. Later it was reduced to a two-member seat when Vancouver-Little Mountain was created, and in the redistribution preceding the 1991 election it was reduced to a one-member riding along with the other older urban ridings, as several new one-member ridings were created.

For a full listing of Vancouver ridings, historical and current, please see Vancouver (electoral districts).

Geography[edit]

The district currently comprises the Vancouver neighbourhoods of West Point Grey and part of Kitsilano, as well as the adjacent University Endowment Lands, the main campus of the University of British Columbia.

In 1988 Kim Campbell resigned as the MLA to run in the federal election. Dr. Tom Perry Tom Perry (NDP) won the seat in the 1989 by-election,finishing the term with Marzari as his seatmate.[3] A redistribution before the 1991 election dramatically changed Vancouver's long-standing electoral map by the abandonment of the century-old multiple member districts. Vancouver-Point Grey was trimmed with parts of going to the creation of Vancouver-Quilchena, Vancouver-Langara, and Vancouver-Burrard (mostly to Quilchena). In the 1991 election Perry moved over and was elected in the riding of Vancouver-Little Mountain.
