Mississauga remains true blue as Conservatives win all six ridings
Published June 3, 2022 at 12:36 am
As we are learning, you can’t put too much faith in polls…at least not in Mississauga.
While many prognosticators suggested that several Mississauga ridings would turn Liberal in 2022, all six Progressive Conservative incumbents have been re-elected.
Riding the Doug Ford wave that swept across Ontario, the incumbents will now return to Queen’s Park for another four years of running the province.
- Deepak Anand (Mississauga-Malton)
- Rudy Cuzzetto (Mississauga-Lakeshore)
- Natalia Kusendova (Mississauga Centre)
- Kaleed Rasheed (Mississauga East-Cooksville)
- Sheref Sabawy (Mississauga-Erin Mills)
- Nina Tangri (Mississauga-Streetsville)
Once polls closed at 9 p.m. PC candidates sprung into the lead and hung on all night.
Significantly, even though Liberals won only nine seats across the province, they came second in all Mississauga ridings outdistancing the NDP which couldn’t build on the momentum of four years ago.
Interesting result of the night was the popularity of the upstart New Blue party in Mississauga East-Cooksville where Mark Morrissey ran fourth — ahead of the Green Party — with 1,601 votes.
