Conservative Kyle Seeback Wins

Dufferin County | by Jill Young  

Dufferin Caledon has another Conservative MP as Kyle Seeback replaces David Tilson.

Dufferin - Caledon is staying blue.

Conservative Kyle Seeback was elected last night, beating Liberal representative Michele Fisher by almost 7,000 votes.

Seeback said one thing he hopes going forward is other communities will take the "Better Ballot Campaign."

That campaign is designed for all Canadians to stand for a civil discussion and respectful debate during the 2019 federal election.

Seeback said he was very disappointed to see the "mud slinging" at the national level and that his campaign was an enjoyable one.

Fisher, meanwhile, echoed Seeback's feelings saying to his credit he was very civil and respectful towards the other candidates during the campaign.

She said it's bitter-sweet with Justin Trudeau being re-elected Prime Minister but losing out on her riding.

Fisher added that although she didn't win, she's confident Kyle will listen to their concerns and will do what's right for Dufferin-Caledon.

Seeback says there's a number of things he wants to tackle but first and foremost wants to soak in the moment.

Meanwhile, Allison Brown of the NDP finished behind Fisher with almost 8, 000 votes, Green Party candidate Stefan Wiesen had just over 7, 000, People's Party representative Chad Ransom got a little more than 1, 500 while Russ Emo of the Christian Heritage Party received just over 300.
