May Finishes 2nd

Posted on Tuesday, November 28 at 09:24 by Rural
Voting results in Ontario showed May finishing a surprising second. She narrowly outpolled Conservative candidate Dianne Haskett, a former mayor of London. May had hoped to become the Green Party's first elected member in the House of Commons, and came far closer than many analysts had predicted, capturing 25.9 per cent of the vote. In January's federal election, Green candidate Stuart Smith came fourth with 5.5 per cent of the vote. In the 2006 federal election, former Green Party Leader Jim Harris placed fourth in Toronto's Beaches-East York riding, capturing six per cent of the vote. Deputy Leader David Chernushenko, running in Ottawa Centre, also placed fourth with 10 per cent support. http://www.ctv.ca/servlet/ArticleNews/story/CTVNews/20061126/fed_byelections_061126/20061127?hub=Politics [Proofreader's note: this article was edited for spelling and typos on November 29, 2006]
