The Battleground Ridings - the 22 races that will decide the election

I thought I would group the ridings by regions because it is very informative where the battleground will be in BC.

Burnaby - New West - Tri-Cities:
There are a total of 11 ridings in this area and 8 of them are in play. This is more than a third of the competitive races in the province.
Burnaby Deer Lake
Burnaby Edmonds
Burnaby Lougheed
Burnaby North
Coquitlam Burke Mountain
Coquitlam Millardville
Maple Ridge Mission
Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows

Northern Interior:
Of the 10 ridings north of Kamloops in BC, three of them are battlegrounds
Cariboo Chilcotin
Cariboo North

Vancouver Island:
The island has 14 ridings and four of them are competitive.
Comox Valley
North Island
Oak Bay Gordon Head
Saanich South

Lower Mainland South of the Fraser:
There are 15 ridings in the area and only 3 are in question, it would be two except for Vicki Huntingdon.
Delta North
Delta South - between Liberals and Vicki Huntingdon
Surrey Fleetwood

Southern Interior:
Of the 14 ridings, I only see 1 in play.
Kootenay East

Four ridings, one in play
North Vancouver Lonsdale

City of Vancouver:
Only two ridings and they are in the centre of the city
Vancouver False Creek
Vancouver Fairview

Note on Feb 5th, a reader on Sacha Peter's blog BC Election 2009 caught a mistake, I had Port Moody on the list and Coquitlam Burke Mountain I meant to have. Thank you JP for catching that.
