There's no more Liberal red on the political map of Windsor-Essex.

The Liberal MPP closest to Windsor is now up Highway 401 in London.

Windsor and Essex County are now represented by three NDP Members of Provincial Parliament.

The lone local Liberal - Teresa Piruzza - lost her seat during last week's election.

CBC Windsor's municipal affairs expert Cheryl Collier thinks local issues might now get tossed on the backburner of the majority Liberal government.

Collier said big-ticket items like the proposed mega-hospital and high-speed rail could now be at risk.

"It’s probably not the best news because we’re missing a member sitting in the government and someone at the cabinet table. It’s going to be much more difficult to get our voice heard," Collier said.

Cheryl Collier is a professor of political science at the University of Windsor. She can be be heard on the Early Shift with Tony Doucette at 8:14 a.m. on Mondays. Tune in to 97.5 FM or listen live online at
