YAK LANDSLIDE AUGERS WELL FOR MPP'S CAREER 6/8/2018 12:22:21 AM
The next four years will be a Progressive Conservative majority government.
The voters of Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke re-elected PC John Yakabuski, and he says he's thrilled to be a part of Ontario's next government.
Yakabuski says this one is for his dad who served in the government for over two decades, and is excited that voters opted for change.
Although Green Party Candidate, Anna Dolan, says she's disappointed in the results, it's the start of something big for her party.
With 16 percent of the vote, or a second place finish in Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke, NDP candidate Ethel LaValley says she's proud of how the party gained ground locally and provincially.
Jackie Agnew, who entered the race to try and stop Ford, is disheartened with the PC majority-- and her third-place finish locally.
Yakabuski had a landslide with 68.9 per cent of the vote, LaValley had 16.8 per cent, 9.9 per cent of the vote went to Agnew, Dolan had 3 per cent of the vote and both Murray Reid of the Confederation of Regions party and Libertarian Jesse Wood had less than 1 per cent of the vote.
