Global News is projecting Liberal MP Chris Bittle will be re-elected in the riding of St. Catharines.
Bittle won this riding for a second term in 2019, with 40.2 per cent of the vote.
Conservative candidate Krystina Waler ended the night as the runner-up, collecting 18,978 votes. The NDP and Green Party contenders came in third and fourth place in this riding.
St. Catharines has gone back and forth between the Liberals and PC/Conservative Party since it was first represented in 1968.

Almost 81 per cent of this riding’s population voted in the 2015 election. St. Catharines is home to 126,110 residents and 93,138 registered voters.
