2019 Canada election results: Markham–Stouffville

Global News has declared Helena Jaczek of the Liberal Party of Canada the winner of Markham–Stouffville.

Philpott resigned from her cabinet position as President of the Treasury Board over the SNC-Lavalin scandal in March of 2019 citing losing “confidence” in Justin Trudeau and his handling of the affair as her reason.

In April, Philpott was kicked out of the Liberal caucus as a result of the controversy.
