Success!

I was going to say that two out of three ain't bad, but I didn't feel like quoting Meatloaf.

The (unofficial) results of the three by-elections are in and I congratulate Christine Elliott and Lisa MacLeod on their victories in Whitby-Ajax and Nepean-Carleton respectively.

Christine defeated former federal Liberal MP, Judi Longfield, by over 1,300 votes.

Lisa soundly took the riding of Nepean-Carleton.

Peter Tabuns, the NDP candidate for Toronto-Danforth, defeated Liberal star-candidate Ben Chin and PC candidate Georgina Blanas - so it's a half-full, half-empty glass thing.

Here are the results from Elections Ontario.
