History

Victoria-Beacon Hill was created for the 1991 general election after the abolition of the two-member district of Victoria along with all other such dual ridings.

Its former MLA is Jeff Bray. He was first elected in 2001. He represented the British Columbia Liberal Party.

The Current MLA is Carole James. She narrowly lost to Bray by 35 votes in 2001, but came back with an almost 2-1 margin of victory, as the BC NDP leader, in 2005.
