Canada election results: Vancouver Granville

View Link »

Liberal candidate Taleeb Noormohamed is projected to narrowly win the riding of Vancouver Granville after three extra days of ballot counting.

Noormohamed defeated New Democrat Anjali Appadurai by just 436 votes, with mail-in ballots slightly expanding the Liberal’s lead in the hotly-contested riding.

The riding was vacated by Liberal-turned-independent candidate Jody Wilson-Raybould, who’d served for two terms.

Noormohamed first ran for the seat in 2019 in a Liberal effort to unseat Wilson-Raybould. But the former attorney general and justice minister earned 32.6 per cent of the vote in that race, beating Noormohamed by 3,177 votes.

In July, Wilson-Raybould announced she will not seek re-election and will instead focus on working outside of federal politics.
