“It’s really satisfying. It’s equal to how hard we worked for the last two months and I’m excited to get onto the job of winning the seat … in 2019,” Tochor said after the vote at Prairieland Park.

“I thank Brad Trost for the years of service. Now is a new page and I’m excited to get to work.”

Trost will still finish out his term. He came in fourth place during the last Conservative Party of Canada leadership race.
