Moncton region keeps Liberal, PC mix as Sackville goes Green
Riding results for ridings around Moncton
An ousted Liberal falls. A new seat for the Greens.
Beyond that, it was a good night for incumbents with the Liberals and PCs in the region.
Those are among some of the results in ridings around southeastern New Brunswick, including the Moncton and Sackville areas.
Megan Mitton won a seat for the Greens in a riding the party hoped would flip from the Liberals. The Sackville town councillor unseated incumbent Liberal Bernard LeBlanc, receiving 3,148 votes to LeBlanc's 3,137. PC Etienne Gaudet received 1,518 while NDP candidate Hélène Boudreau received 410.
There were 8,213 ballots cast in this riding with 11,489 eligible voters.
This central Moncton riding saw Liberal Cathy Rogers re-elected after a closely fought race between the high-profile Gallant cabinet minister and a Liberal-turned PC candidate Moira Murphy.

Collins was booted from the Liberal caucus in April after Gallant announced he had learned of harassment allegations against Collins, the Speaker of the legislature.
