UXBRIDGE: Residents in the Pickering-Uxbridge riding have given Liberal Jennifer O’Connell another term as their Member of Parliament.

Ms. O’Connell was re-elected with 51 per cent of the votes cast, or 32,019 votes on Monday, October 21st. Ms. O’Connell could not be reached for comment by press time. Coming in second was Conservative candidate Cyma Musarat with 18,320 votes, 29.2 per cent. It was a somber evening at the headquarters for Pickering-Uxbridge Conservative candidate Cyma Musarat, as nearly three dozen supporters sat quietly watching a monitor displaying ongoing election coverage. In defeat, the entrepreneur offered thanks to her supporters for all of their hard work throughout the campaign. “It was a difficult night, but I am incredibly proud of my volunteers. They worked so hard and we made such great progress,” Musarat commented. “We’re going to continue to fight for Pickering-Uxbridge, and this region and this country.” Following in third was NDP candidate Eileen Higdon with 11.9 per cent or 7,462 votes. The Green Party finished fourth with 5.9 per cent and the People’s Party of Canada was fifth with 2 per cent. With files from Darryl Knight
