The new riding of Nepean has gone Liberal red, electing high-tech entrepreneur Chandra Arya as their new member of Parliament.
“What an exceptional night! What an incredible journey!” Arya told a raucous room of about a hundred supporters gathered at his campaign headquarters on Strandherd Drive after his victory. “Nepean has rejected the politics of fear and division. Tomorrow Canada will wake up to a Liberal government in waiting. We will have much work to do, many of Harper’s mistakes to fix and to implement a plan to grow our middle class.”
Chandra Arya defeated Conservative Andy Wang in a tightly fought campaign. It’s the first time in more than a decade that residents of Barrhaven, Bells Corners and large parts of the former city of Nepean will be represented by a Liberal.
