  • The Wellington Advertiser - Liberal candidate John Wilkinson wins handily in Perth-Wellington
    said he was not surprised by the results of the referendum nor was he disappointed Personally he has al ways maintained that any system with larger ridings specifically in rural areas is a bad idea About 63 of those those who voted want to maintain the status quo and stick with the First Past the Post electoral system while just 37 voted in favour of the alternative Mixed Member Proportional In Perth Wellington the discrepancy was even larger with nearly 68 voting for the First Past the Post system Liberal candidate John Ruth erford who received 32 of the votes had a mixed reaction to the results of the local election which he felt for some time he had a good chance of winning He said on one hand he was surprised with the size of Wilkinson s margin of victory but on the other he is not really that shocked at the outcome When asked to explain the reason for the margin of Wilkinson s victory Ruther ford said it can be partially attributed to low voter turnout but it really boiled down to one issue education funding I think that issue really haunted us Rutherford said of Progressive Conservative lead er John Tory s 400 million proposal to extend public funding to faith based schools He explained that many voters are opposed to that plan so some chose to abstain while others gravitated to different parties this time around The people have spoken he said adding he congratulated Wilkinson on election night and has nothing personal against the Liberal winner who also ran a good campaign Rutherford said many people have said his results are great for his first election but he considers himself his greatest critic and is still disappointed he didn t do better But despite the loss he feels he ran a very good campaign locally and thanked his team of volunteers which numbered about 50 for all their help including door to door canvassing and help with fundraisers Rutherford also thanked all the people in the Wellington County portion of the riding for all their support and for making him feel at home during his campaign Donna Hansen the local NDP candidate said last week she is unhappy with her results 3 922 votes While she was not surprised with the overall outcome of the election she said she is disappointed she personally did not fare better Particularly she is upset she did not match the provincial percentage of her party Han sen garnered 10 of local votes while her party received nearly 17 throughout the province She said part of the problem is the local NDP riding association is so small meaning she had fewer people working on her campaign She said the association will be seeking more members in the future Personally Hansen is very disappointed with the results of the referendum However Hansen said she was not hopeful going into the election that the MMP system would be supported be cause
