Ted Marcelino, NDP incumbent in Tyndall Park

NDP incumbent Ted Marcelino was beaten out by Liberal Cindy Lamoureux, in a rare election race that pitted two incumbents against each other.

Point Douglas man frustrated by election signs erroneously placed – twice – on his private property

Point Douglas man frustrated by election signs erroneously placed – twice – on his private property A Point Douglas man says an election sign that was attached to his chain link fence – twice in recent weeks – was put there without his permission, and he's trying to figure out why. Frank Douglas told 680 CJOB he was sitting in the living room of his Burrows Avenue home last week when he saw two children and a woman he believes was their mother on his property. The kids, he said, dropped an NDP pamphlet in his mailbox, while the mother started affixing a sign to his fence.

The incumbent is the current holder of an office or position, usually in relation to an election . For example, in an election for president, the incumbent is the person holding or acting in the office of president before the election , whether seeking re- election or not.

The Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba ran 38 candidates in the 1953 provincial election , under the leadership of Errick Willis. Twelve of these candidates were elected , and the Progressive Conservatives formed the official opposition in the legislature.

Lamoureux previously represented the Burrows riding, but jumped over to Tyndall Park after boundary lines were redrawn in 2018. The changes moved portions of her former riding into the updated Tyndall Park.

Marcelino had represented the riding since 2011, the first year the riding was on the books for a general election.

On Tuesday, he said Lamoureux and her team worked hard and deserved the win.

"I'm more than willing to retire," Marcelino said. "But I'll hold the PC government accountable, even from the outside."

"They are doing something really bad to Winnipeg, and I feel that here," he added, touching his chest.

The riding was a crucial win for the Liberals, one of only three seats the party won in the election. That's down from the four seats the party held following the 2016 election, and not enough to secure it official party status.

Andrew Coyne: Trudeau is gaming the election debate system, just like Harper before him

Andrew Coyne: Trudeau is gaming the election debate system, just like Harper before him Explaining why the prime minister would not participate in the full schedule of leaders’ debates this election campaign, as he had in 2015, Liberal director of communications Daniel Lauzon said his leader would only show up for debates organized by the federal Leaders’ Debates Commission — the one designed and implemented by the Liberals. “The commission,” he elaborated, “was established after the last election where the governing party tried to game the system.” That much is true.

Cliff Graydon, Independent incumbent in Borderland

Cliff Graydon was an incumbent candidate in the riding of Borderland — previously Emerson — but this time around he ran as an Independent.

Graydon was booted from the Progressive Conservative caucus in October 2018 following what media reports on that he had invited two women on separate occasions to sit on his lap, and invited one woman to lick food off his face.

Graydon acknowledged at the time he had an outdated sense of humour and had made inappropriate remarks, but he said he had not sexually harassed anyone and had no memory of inviting anyone to lick his face. He also denied allegations from a longtime party volunteer that he groped and propositioned her in September 2017.

Following his ouster, Graydon initially said he wouldn't seek re-election. But in July, he announced he'd run as an Independent.

On Tuesday, he was beaten out by rookie Josh Guenter, the candidate for his former Progressive Conservative party.

Election 2019: Here are nine ridings to watch for clues to vote trends

Election 2019: Here are nine ridings to watch for clues to vote trends Though much of the focus during this election campaign will inevitably be on the leaders, certain regional trends and local battles may provide important clues about which way the wind is blowing before voters head to the polls on Oct. 21. In Atlantic Canada, the Conservatives will try to pull seats back from the Liberals, who swept the region in 2015. In Quebec, the NDP will fight to hold on to their seats around Montreal, as Maxime Bernier tries to keep his seat as leader of the new People’s Party of Canada. Across the country on Vancouver Island, the Green Party will try to turn record poll showings into a few more seats in the House of Commons.

Guenter, a former constituency assistant in the area, won the riding by nearly 3,700 votes over second-place Liberal candidate Loren Braul.

Blair Yakimoski, PC incumbent in Transcona

PC incumbent Blair Yakimoski lost out to rookie NDP candidate Nello Altomare in Transcona after serving since 2016.

The former grocery store owner was new to politics when he won the 2016 election by nearly 1,700 votes. Prior to the 2019 election, he was pitted against PC hopeful Ramona Coey, a longtime party volunteer, for the right to carry the Tory banner.

"If you put in the hard work, you await the results in peace," Bindle said after polls closed Tuesday.

"The people have spoken. One thing that I'm happy about is, even though I didn't score a goal, our team won, and won a majority."
