In the former riding of New Westminster-Coquitlam-Burnaby, Paul Forseth won the previous three elections as a Reform/Canadian Alliance member.

In 1988, New Westminister-Burnaby riding was won by a New Democrat, Dawn Black. New Democrats Stuart Leggatt and Pauline Jewett represented this area for the NDP through most of the 1970s and 1980s.

Liberals had more success in Vancouver South-Burnaby, where Herb Dhaliwal served three terms from 1993. Dhaliwal served as the minister of revenue, fisheries and oceans, and natural resources. Health Minister Ujjal Dosanjh won for the Liberals in the new Vancouver South riding in 2004.
