It was Élisabeth Brière of the Liberal Party of Canada who won for the second time in a row the seat in the riding of Sherbrooke, where the fight was tight throughout the campaign with the candidate of the Bloc Québécois, Ensaf Haidar.
If the polls placed her neck and neck with the wife of political prisoner Raïf Badawi, Ms. Brière stood out with more than 15,156 votes at 12:30 am yesterday, or 3,049 more than her main competitor.
The MP was first elected in 2019 with one of the lowest percentages of votes in Canada, 29.3%. Resident of Sherbrooke since 1987, the former notary promised to improve immigration services in the constituency.
In addition to these two women, the riding had two young candidates: Marika Lalime from the NDP and Andrea Winters from the Conservative Party.
