After the polls closed at 9:30 p.m., occasionally Sam McLeod and Adrian Bugell, Duncan’s campaign co-chairs, would interrupt the televised election results from across the county with vote updates from SDSG; it soon became apparent that Duncan would be the next federal Member of Parliament for Stormont, Dundas and South Glengarry. After being introduced by Guy Lauzon, the long serving MP for SDSG, Duncan entered the crowded room at the Ramada Inn in Cornwall where close to 200 supporters and friends had gathered earlier in the evening; Duncan entered the room to the sounds of bagpipes. During a brief statement, Duncan thanked his family members for their support, his campaign co-chairs and campaign volunteers and Guy and Frances Lauzon for their support and assistance in the 2019 federal campaign. Duncan then made his way through the crowd of supporters and spoke with people offering their congratulations. Elections Canada results as of press time listed the following voting statistics: Green Party, Raheem Aman, 2,080 votes (3.9%); Conservative party, Eric Duncan, 28,848 votes (54.2%); Liberal party, Heather Megill, 13,585 (25.5%); New Democratic Party, Kelsey Catherine Schmitz, 7,567 votes (14.2%) and People’s Party, Sabile Trimm, 1,178 votes (2.2%). The Elections Canada website also noted that voter turnout was “53,258 of 84,723 registered electors (62.86 %)” not including “electors who registered on election day.” Duncan is pictured here, celebrating with Guy.
