Federal Election

UPDATE: All polls counted for Mission-Matsqui-Fraser Canyon, Abbotsford ridings

Conservatives Brad Vis and Ed Fast were declared early winners for the ridings

Polls are closed in British Columbia, and the results of the election in the Mission-Matsqui-Fraser Canyon and Abbotsford ridings will be coming in throughout the night.

The Mission-Matsqui-Fraser Canyon riding, which stretches from Abbotsford in the south to Cache Creek in the north, has nearly 70,000 registered voters, in a population of nearly 95,000. In the 2015 election, the riding was the last to be called across the country, with Conservative candidate Brad Vis losing by less than 100 votes.

The Abbotsford riding has nearly 75,000 voters in a population of 101,814. It has been the riding of Conservative candidate Ed Fast since 2006, when he won with 63 per cent of the vote. His percentage of the votes went up in each election until 2015, when he was elected in with only 48 per cent of the ballots in Abbotsford.

Both Brad Vis and Ed Fast have been declared winners in their riding by the Canadian Press just before 8:45 p.m.

Vis takes the Mission-Matsqui-Fraser Canyon riding with 42.1 per cent of the vote, with all polls reported in. Fast takes Abbotsford for the fifth election in a row, with 51.6 per cent of the vote with all polls reporting in at 10:58 p.m. Monday night.
