Redistribution[edit]

Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows and Mission-Kent were created from Dewdney during the 1989 redistribution. Whereas later in 2000, Mission-Kent and Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows were used to create Maple Ridge-Mission. Finally in the latest redistribution, 2008, just over half of the original riding remain and to it was added a fraction of Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows.[1]

History[edit]

Its MLA was Randy Hawes under the former boundary system, who is a former mayor of the District of Mission. He was first elected in 2001, representing the British Columbia Liberal Party. He successfully ran again in the Abbotsford-Mission riding for the 2009 election.
