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.

    Have you met Mr Lamoreux?

    If the NDP has their hands full managing their inexperienced (as well as crazy in some cases no doubt) Quebec MPs, the LPC will have their hands full with Mr L, whereby “L” stands for Loony tunes.

    Looks like a game changer….

    I’m glad to know that you think its “great news” that the Liberals re-elected an anti-abortion fanatic who is heavily backed by the so-called pro-life movement. Is that the direction you want the remains of the Liberal party to take moving forward?

    Congratulations. If he’s pro-life he’s a good man.

    I think Lamoureux would make a good new Liberal leader. the Liberals need to find a new ideological niche – why not be the party of socially conservative anti-abortion types who also pay lip service to having a social conscience. Harper seems to have thrown the pro-life movement under a bus – so they are there for the taking. Maybe as leader, Lamoureux could even try to assemble a “dream team” of Liberal candidates for the next election headed by Tom Wappel making a comeback!!

    Any Liberal that beats a Dipper is OK in my books!
