Conservative MP and Employment Minister Pierre Poilievre has won the riding of Carleton over Liberal candidate Chris Rodgers.

Poilievre represented the former riding of Nepean-Carleton since 2004, and won a close race over Rodgers in the newly created riding.

Green Party candidate Deborah Coyne defected from the Liberal party in 2015, after running for the Liberal leadership in 2013, and losing the Liberal nomination in Ottawa West-Nepean for this election.

The riding combines parts of the former Nepean-Carleton and Carleton-Mississippi Mills ridings. It includes Osgoode, Munster, Stittsville, Kars, North Gower and Greely.

If the boundaries of this riding existed in 2011, the Conservatives would have taken 61.7 per cent of the vote, followed by the Liberals with 20.9 per cent.
