His biggest competition in the race was NDP candidate Ramsey Hart, executive director of a food bank in Perth.

Earlier in the election campaign, Doug Ford targeted Hart specifically for his past work with MiningWatch Canada, a sign perhaps that Hart may have posed a threat to Hillier.

Liberal candidate Amanda Puller-Mok received just over 10 per cent of the vote and the Green Party’s Anita Payne received just shy of five per cent of votes.

Hillier first ran for provincial politics in the now non-existent Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington riding in 2007.
