federal election

Liberal incumbent Mona Fortier was re-elected as the Member of Parliament for Ottawa-Vanier on Monday night in a decisive win, garnering support from about 50 per cent of the riding’s voters. The NDP’s Stephanie Mercier and the Conservative’s Joel Bernard came second and third respectively.

Voter turnout in people aged 18-24 jumped by 18.3 per cent from the 2011 election to the 2015 election. It’s never been easier to make an informed decision of which candidate and party you want to support, so let’s keep that trend alive.

The incumbent MP and Liberal candidate for Ottawa-Vanier says she will prioritize affordable housing and fighting the climate crisis if elected. For students, Fortier says she’ll work to secure federal funding to help the province boost mental health support on campus.

For October’s federal election, most polls are indicating that both the Liberals and Conservatives are tied for Canadians’ support. This means that it is more than likely that either party will end up with less than a majority of the seats in the House of Commons, thereby swinging the determination of the balance of power to the smaller parties.
