2019 Canada election results: Vimy

Global News has declared Liberal Annie Koutrakis the winner of the Vimy riding with 47.5 per cent of the vote.

Liberal incumbent Eva Nassif did not seek re-election.

Nassif won the newly created riding in the 2015 federal election with 46.15 per cent of the vote.

However, the rookie MP unexpectedly announced in August she would not seek a second term which shocked the Liberal riding association. Nassif later accused Trudeau of denying her candidacy for having not lauded him as a feminist — claims that Trudeau denied, saying that it was for other reasons.

Boundaries: This riding, located north of Montreal, is mostly made up of the former Laval riding, with small pieces of Laval—Les-Îles and Alfred-Pellan. It includes Saint-Martin and Laval-des-Rapides.

History: Vimy was created under a redistribution of federal electoral boundaries in 2012 and came into effect during the 42nd Canadian federal election. The former riding of Laval had been represented by the Bloc Québécois from 2004 until the NDP win in 2011. The Liberals won in 2015.
