Cornwall - May. 2, 2011 - The Cornwall region will once again be represented on the government side of the House of Commons as Conservative incumbent Guy Lauzon was re-elected by a wide margin on Monday night.

On an election night filled with change, there was one constant in Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry - Lauzon won again, and he won big.

Lauzon garnered 28,351 votes (with 230 of 234 polls reporting) and 62 per cent of the total vote to win his fourth consecutive election.

Liberal candidate Bernadette Clement finished with 8,109 votes, putting her in a near tie with New Democrat Mario Leclerc, who received 8,095 votes.

Green candidate Wyatt Walsh received 1,008 votes, while Libertarian Darcy Neal Donnelly finished with 155 votes.

As for his priorities for the upcoming term, Lauzon has pointed to the expansion of the Cornwall Regional Airport and the development of the Nav Centre as a public service training centre as two of the top items on his agenda.

A total of 45,718 votes were cast in S-D-SG, representing a voter turnout rate of 60 per cent.

In nearby Glengarry-Prescott-Russell, Conservative incumbent Pierre Lemieux was re-elected with roughly 27,000 votes - about 10,000 more than his closest challenger, Liberal Julie Bourgeois.

On the national level, it was an election filled with change, including the formation of a Conservative majority government, the rise of the NDP to Official Opposition status, the fall of the Bloc Quebecois to just a few seats in the House of Commons and a win by Green leader Elizabeth May in B.C.
