Ottawa – The Conservatives have long been hung on a long-time Tori Fiffom Monday, scoring a convincing victory at a federal allegation held in East Ontario.
With 215 out of 238 polls reporting in Leeds-Grenville-Thousands and Rideau Lakes, Conservative candidate Michael Barrett, a municipal counselor, has placed 58.3 per cent of the vote.
Liberal contender Mary Jeanne McFall was second with 35.2 per cent, while the NDP and green contenders brought up the rear with 3.2 and three per cent, respectively.
The riding was idle when Conservative MP Gordon Brown died in May. He was the MP since 2004.
The Conservatives have kept the riding for all but 16 of the last 40 years.
The Liberals held the rides from 1988 to 2004, thanks in large part to conservative vote splitting between Progressive Conservatives and the Canadian Alliance.
But since the reunification of conservative forces in 2004, the Conservatives have been pretty much invincible in the riding.
Brown has more than 50% of the votes in four votes, with almost 61% in 2011.
His fifth and final election, in 2015, was his closest, with Liberal MacPol's niping on his heels. Brown captured 47.4 per cent from the vote to MacPol's 40.6 per cent.
On Monday, Barret spoke to increase the Conservatives – Parts of the vote by 11 percentage points while McFall & # 39; Share shares dropped by five points.
For the NDP, the results of Monday were very rude. The party's share of the votes plunged to less than half the 8.3 percent it was in 2015, which was a disillusioned 2011 coup when the NDP managed to finish second, before the Liberals.
New Democrats are hoping the party's slumping fortunes will turn around once a song from Jagmeet Singh wins a seat in the House of Commons. He will get his chance in early February, when the victims are in three more empty removals – British Columbia Riding from Burnaby South, where Singh intends to run, the Montreal Riding of Outremont and the Ontario Reading of York-Simcoe.
Prime Minister Justin Trudau is privileged to call the three files early next month and may add a fourth, NIN. Nanaimo Ladysit, where NDP MP Sheila Malcolmson makes a leap to provincial policy. She announced her intention to resign once a by-election was officially called in the provincial riding of Nanaimo, expected by early January.
However, Malcolmson should not abandon her federal seat until late January, Nanaimo-Ladysmith could wound up a MP until the general election set for Oct. 21.
Under the C-76 Bill, which the government hopes would be implemented by the end of this year, the prime minister would be prohibited from calling for a renewal within nine months of the day fixed for a general election, made by the 20th of January by the selection May be called.
For this reason, the Montreal-American-Melodic Riding Channel is likely to be responsible until next October. Liberal MP Nicola Di Iorio said he wanted to hand in his resignation on January 22.
The Ontario Reading from Brampton East could also be left without representation, depending on which Raj Raj decides to do. The MP, who was drafted by the Liberal Caucasus last week between the revelations that he was under the police investigation after rocking up huge gambling debts, announced late last month that he was resigning his seat.
He has since changed his mind and now says he will take a leave in the holiday season and decide in the new year to continue as a MP.
