The Liberals won the election. What will be the toughest promises for them to keep?

Stetski won the riding in 2015 by fewer than 300 votes — one of the closest races in the country.

He then lost to Morrison in 2019 by about 7,000 votes.

This time, Morrison was in the lead with about 4,800 votes.

The Conservatives were the favourites here, but with success in the past, the NDP was hoping to win back the electoral district that includes Revelstoke and Cranbrook.
