Canada election results: Dartmouth—Cole Harbour

Incumbent Darren Fisher is projected to be re-elected in the riding of Dartmouth-Cole Harbour.

The Dartmouth—Cole Harbour consists of a part of the Halifax Regional Municipality and covers urban Dartmouth and the area of Cole Harbour.

Surrounding ridings include Halifax West, Sackville—Preston—Chezzetcook and Halifax.

Dartmouth—Cole Harbour voters re-elected Liberal incumbent Darren Fisher as their MP in the 2019 election. He managed to capture 45.3 per cent of the vote, beating NDP candidate Emma Norton.

Fisher previously served as councillor and deputy major in the Halifax Regional Municipality.

The Liberals were unable to make a full sweep in Nova Scotia during the 2019 election, managing to pick up 10 seats while losing 1 seat to the Conservatives in West Nova.

The region has flipped back and forth between the Liberals and the NDP since 1988. Liberal MP Mike Savage represented this riding from 2004 to 2011. He’s since been elected as mayor of the Halifax Regional Municipality.

For this election, there will be no Conservative candidate in Dartmouth-Cole Harbour after Troy Myers withdrew his candidancy.

Myers has been accused in a social media post of a sexual assault that allegedly took place in 2019, according to a woman who says she met him at a conference that year.

The party said it won’t be filling in the seat with a new candidate as the deadline for party-endorsed candidates has passed.
