Alistair MacGregor of the NDP has been re-elected in the riding of Cowichan-Malahat-Langford, earning 36.2 per cent of the vote.
MacGregor defeated Conservative Alana DeLong and Lydia Hwitsum of the Greens.
NDP MP Jean Crowder was the local representative for much of the riding from 2004 until 2015.
MacGregor moved from working in Crowder’s constituency office to becoming MP himself, registering a decisive 2015 victory in the riding that bridges the Capital Region District to mid-Vancouver Island.
The Conservatives were eyeing this NDP seat by running DeLong, who served four terms in Edmonton as a Progressive Conservative.
