Found a pond in a large urban Victoria, BC park that had a bunch of red-ear sliders. The two on either side of this red-ear look different, any ideas if they are?

I suck at turtle IDs other than the basics, but I think it's safe to say you got three different species there.

I'm guessing the one with the ridges (left) is a False Map Turtle, middle a Red-eared Slider, and the larger one to the right is an old Red-eared Slider that has lost much of its color.

I agree with the Graptemys. Could be false, Ouachita or some other species from the SE that I am not proficient in IDing.
