Lobb heads back to Ottawa as MP for Huron-Bruce

Conservative Ben Lobb has won his fourth consecutive race for the Huron Bruce riding in yesterday's (October 21) Federal Election.

The 46-year old incumbent beat Liberal candidate Allan Thompson, with 48.7 percent of the vote.

Lobb, who wins his 4th consecutive election says he's thankful for the support but now it's time to get back to work and there are many issues facing Huron Bruce, such as rural health care; infrastructure; trade and agriculture issues.

He says with the minority Liberal government, they're going to have to learn to cooperate with the provinces to get things done.

Thompson received 33 percent of votes and says he's going to take a step back momentarily, after losing twice to the Conservative Candidate.

"It's been a long 4-5 years of working at this, so...I wouldn't want to quickly decide what happens next," says Thompson.

Thompson says the people of Huron-Bruce have spoken, but "so have the people of Canada" in re-electing Justin Trudeau.

New Democrat Tony McQuail received 12.3 percent of the votes.

Followed by Nicholas Wendler of the Green's who had 4.4 percent; with People's Party Candidate Kevin M. Klerks achieving 1.8 percent of the vote.
