Though Jeff Yurek won the Elgin-Middlesex-London riding by a landslide in yesterday's Ontario provincial election, the Progressive Conservative Party, under whose banner he was running, lost the election and lost 10 seats overall.

With 20,762 votes, Yurek picked up 46.38% of the riding's vote. NDP candidate Kathy Cornish came in second with 11,942 votes or 26.68%. Liberal Serge Lavoie was a distant third at 9,051 votes or 20.22%. Green Party candidate Joe Fisher picked up 2,208 votes or 4.93%, and Clare Maloney secured 798 votes for the Freedom Party or 1.78%.

The Liberals were elected in 59 of the province's 107 ridings, giving them a majority government. The Progressive Conservatives were elected in 27 ridings and the NDP in 21 ridings. The PCs lost 10 seats overall, with 6 of those seats going to the Liberals and 4 of them going to the NDP. Generally, the trend for the vote went primarily Liberal in the urban centres of the province, with the NDP following at a close second and dominating in the north sector of the province. The Progressive Conservative vote was concentrated in the rural southwest sector of the province.

Jeff Yurek said he plans to continue to proactively serve his constituents of Elgin-Middlesex-London and to push to get Ryan's Law passed.
