Ted Falk holds on to Provencher riding
Ted Falk will continue to represent the Provencher riding as their Member of Parliament.
Falk is being projected as the winner according to CTV’s Decision Desk. With 210 of 222 polls reporting as of Monday night, Falk has received 48.4 per cent of the vote, more than double his nearest challenger.
Trevor Kirczenow with the Liberals is in second place with 17.2 per cent of the vote, while Noel Gautron with the People’s Party of Canada is in third place with 15.8 per cent of the vote.
Serina Pottinger with the NDP received 13.3 per cent of the vote for fourth place. Janine Gibson with the Green Party is in fifth place with 2.7 per cent of the vote, followed by Independent candidate Rick Loewen with 2.6 per cent of the vote.
Falk has represented Provencher since 2013. In the week before the election, he was quoted in a local newspaper urging constituents to "do their research" on COVID-19 vaccines, suggesting they do more harm than good. Falk later apologized for the comments.
