    The liberals and conservatives managed to retain their seats without a win, Monday night, at the end of the four elections held in four provinces.

    On the side of Newfoundland and Labrador, the liberal Churence Rogers was easily swept away, succeeding to the former minister of public Services and the Supply of Judy Foote, who resigned last summer for personal reasons.

    Mr. Rogers has won 69.2% of the votes cast in the electoral district of Bonavista-Burin-Trinity, far ahead of its closest rival, the conservative Mike Windsor, which received 22.9 per cent of support.

    Although it is a victory unequivocally to one that was to this day the mayor of Centreville-Wareham-Trinity, the liberals have taken a drop, who had won the constituency with 81.8% of votes in 2015, the highest majority in the country. Only 21,43 % of the electorate exercised their right to vote.

    In Ontario, the liberal Jean Yip has managed to succeed his deceased husband, the liberal mp Dominic Chan, winning nearly 50 % of the votes in the riding of Scarborough-Agincourt. Recall that Mr. Chan passed away in September last died of cancer.

    The conservative Dasong Zou took the second rank by obtaining the favor of a little more than 40% of the electorate.

    For its part, the conservative Rosemarie Ashley Falk easily won the riding of Battlefords-Lloydminster, Saskatchewan, with almost 70 % support. Candidates néodémocrate and liberal have delivered a hot fight for second place.

    The new member succeeds Gerry Ritz, who resigned in August after representing the district without interruption since 1997 under the banner of the reform Party, the canadian Alliance and the conservative Party.

    Finally, the liberal Gordie Hogg was in the process of the take away at the end of the evening in British Columbia in the riding of Surrey-Sud–White Rock, under a slim lead over the conservative Kerry-Lynne Findlay.
