Local Election results: London and area ridings stay the course with no change in seats
After 36 days of campaigning, the results in London and the surrounding region are a good indicator of what the election looked like as a whole, not very different.
No seats changed hands in London and surrounding areas although the Liberals faced tight races in London-West and London North Centre.
As of 6 a.m. Tuesday Justin Trudeau's Liberals held or were leading in 158 ridings, a marginal gain of three seats from 2019.
While the Liberals will form the next government they come short of the magic number of 170 to form a majority government.
This election saw long lines at some polling stations which caused some delays in some reporting across the country.
Elections Canada says some ridings could take up to four days to count.
In the London area, London North Centre proved to take the longest to call with incumbent Peter Fragiskatos eventually emerging victorious sometime after midnight.
The riding stays Liberal but a new Member of Parliament is off to Ottawa for London West. Arielle Kayabaga has been declared the winner with 234/235 polls reporting as of 6 a.m. Kayabaga put her name on the ballot after Kate Young announced in March that she would not seek re-election.

It’s certainly up for some negotiation in terms of what we want to see coming forward. And I know Jagmeet [Singh] has shown incredible leadership, I am so grateful to be a member of the caucus under his leadership.
