CORNWALL – Conservative Eric Duncan has been re-elected as MP for Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry.

As of 11:30 p.m. with two-thirds of the SDSG polls reporting, Duncan had just over 15,000 votes or 56 per cent of the popular vote. His closest challenger, Liberal Denis Moquin, had a little more than 6,200 votes or 22 per cent.

Duncan was declared the winner by CBC News.

New Democrat Trevor Kennedy had 11 per cent, People’s Party David Anber had just under 8 per cent and the Green Party’s Jeanie Warnock had just over 2 per cent of the vote.

Duncan held a small victory party at a restaurant on Vincent Massey Drive in Cornwall.

This is a second victory for Duncan after winning in 2019 after MP Guy Lauzon retired.

On the national front, the Justin Trudeau Liberals were projected by major Canadian media outlets to be back in Parliament as a minority government.
