Pierre Poilievre re-elected in Carleton
Poilievre has a long history in the riding
Pierre Poilievre has been re-elected in the riding of Carleton.
As the sole Conservative MP in Ottawa going into election night, CBC News projects Poilievre will remain a strong political voice in the region.
One of the most visible Conservative MPs as of late, the MP was a prominent critic during the Liberals' WE Charity scandal.
The MP has held the seat since 2015 when the riding was created. Before that he held the former riding of Nepean-Carleton as Conservative since 2004.
Trying to unseat the veteran politician were Liberal Gustave Roy; the NDP's Kevin Hua; the Greens' Nira Dookeran; and Peter Crawley of the People's Party.
The riding, located south of Ottawa's downtown, has a population of 102,918 and spans 1,229 square kilometres.
