OTTAWA – Elections Canada says a judicial recount has confirmed the election victory of Liberal Kevin Lamoureux in Winnipeg North.
In the election night count, Lamoureux finished with a 45-vote lead over New Democrat Rebecca Blaikie.
The judicial recount reduced Lamoureux’s margin to 44 votes, giving him 9,097 to Blaikie’s 9,053.
Lamoureux first won the riding in a byelection last November.
The recount leaves the Liberals with 34 seats, the NDP with 103 and the Tories 166, along with four Bloc MPs and Elizabeth May of the Greens.
Two more recounts are pending in southern Ontario.
