CASE EARNS 17,000 VOTES AND GRACIOUS IN DEFEAT 6/8/2018 6:39:20 AM
Former Toronto City Councilor Doug Ford and the Ontario PC's won a majority government with a total of 76 seats in the Ontario legislature Thursday night. Here locally, Incumbent MPP Monte McNaughton rode in on that blue wave and won re-election with over 27,000 votes. Local NDP Candidate Todd Case held his after party at the Duke on Sydenham in Kenwick Mall, and says he accepts the result, but obviously isn't enthusiastic about it.
Case says that he won't let this loss get him down, and he'll continue his duties as Mayor of Warwick Township.
He adds that the fight to make sure the Ontario Government treats rural Ontario well will never be over. Case managed to get close to 17,000 votes. Case called McNaughton shortly after he won and congratulated him on being re-elected, and hopes he continues to represent Lambton-Kent-Middlesex well. The NDP formed the official opposition with a total of 40 seats.
