Election results closer than originally reported

PERTH-WELLINGTON - It appears it was a closer race than first thought between Progressive Conservative Randy Pettapiece and Liberal John Wilkinson in the Oct. 6 provincial election.

After the Advertiser’s deadline, Elections Ontario found it had failed to include a poll in its first count.

The new results, while still considered unofficial, revealed only a 0.5% difference (210 votes) between Pettapiece and Wilkinson.

Wilkinson is not seeking a recount.

The latest results on the Elections Ontario website are:

- Randy Pettapiece, PC, 14,845 votes;

- John Wilkinson, Liberal, 14,635;

- Ellen Papenburg, NDP, 5,836;

- Chris Desjardins, Green Party, 918;

- Irma DeVries, Family Coalition Party, 627; and

- Robby Smink, Freedom Party, 164.
