Earlier today we posted a story identifying nine strategic ridings. Here are the results:
CENTRAL NOVA: Though Elizabeth May gave Peter MacKay a run for his riding during the campaign, the Tory heavyweight came away with a resounding victory.
PARKDALE-HIGHPARK: The race was too close to call until well into the evening, but Liberal Gerard Kennedy eventually edged out the NDP’s Peggy Nash.
HALTON: Conservative Lisa Raitt topped Garth Turner, the Tory-turned-Independent-turned-Liberal.
VANCOUVER CENTRE: Hedy Fry proved, once more, that she’s the giant slayer of downtown Vancouver. Tory Lorne Mayencourt did surprisingly well, placing second.
WEST N.S.: Conservative Greg Kerr successfully unseated Liberal Robert Thibault.
VAUDREUIL-SOULANGES: The Bloc’s Meili Faille roundly thumped ex-Senator Michael Fortier, the Tories’ only cabinet loss.
WESTMOUNT-VILLE MARIE: Former astronaut Marc Garneau soundly defeated the NDP’s Anne Lagacé Dowson, holding the staunchly Liberal seat.
PAPINEAU: The Trudeau legacy lives on as Justin packs his bags for Ottawa after beating Bloc incumbent Vivian Barbot.
SAANICH-GULF ISLANDS: Tory incumbent Gary Lunn was triumphant again, beating out Liberal candidate Briony Penn.
