Notable winners
Yves-François Blanchet: The leader of the Bloc Québécois ousted two-term NDP MP Matthew Dubé to secure the Beloeil-Chambly seat in Quebec.

Jenica Atwin: Atwin became the Green Party’s first MP in Atlantic Canada on Monday night.

Jack Harris: In what could be called the comeback of the night, the NDP candidate reclaimed his St. John’s East seat in Newfoundland and Labrador after losing it in the 2015 red wave in Atlantic Canada.

Steven Guilbeault: The Liberal candidate in Laurier-Sainte-Marie kept the Bloc from reclaiming its old riding after the incumbent NDP MP candidate didn’t run for re-election.

Notable losers
Ralph Goodale: The longtime, stalwart Liberal MP and former cabinet minister, was ousted in Regina-Wascana by his Conservative rival.

Amarjeet Sohi: The Liberal candidate and former cabinet minister succumbed to the blue wave in Alberta.

Lisa Raitt: The Tory candidate and deputy leader, who had represented her riding in Ottawa for 11 years and served in Stephen Harper’s cabinet, lost her Milton seat to Liberal star candidate and Olympian Adam van Koeverden.

Ruth Ellen Brosseau: The two-term incumbent NDP candidate, first elected in the 2011 orange wave, was narrowly defeated by the Bloc in the Berthier-Maskinongé riding as the New Democrats were all but decimated in Quebec on Monday night.

Jane Philpott: The former Liberal cabinet minister, who resigned from cabinet over the SNC-Lavalin affair and was later kicked out of the Liberal caucus, tried to return to Parliament as an independent but came in a distant third in her riding of Markham-Stouffville.
