Kelowna–Lake Country is a traditional Conservative seat that the BC Liberals won in 2015, only to lose it again in 2019.

In 2015, Stephen Fuhr knocked off three-time Conservative incumbent Ron Cannan in what was considered a major upset.

He was the first Liberal to represent Kelowna since 1972 and the first to represent the party in B.C.’s Interior since 1979.

But four years later, Gray took the seat back with nearly 9,000 votes in 2019.

Liberal Party: Tim Krupa

Conservative Party: Tracy Gray (incumbent)
