EDMONTON -- Conservative candidate James Cumming was declared winner over Liberal incumbent Randy Boissonnault in Edmonton Centre with 43.5 per cent of the vote.
"We heard the voices of Edmonton," Cumming said in his acceptance speech. "I think we'll continue to press for the issues that are important to Albertans—get the economy going to get our resources to market.
Cumming said he's "worried" about the future of pipelines. Tim Uppal, the Conservative candidate who won in Edmonton Mill Woods, said he would challenge Justin Trudeau and make sure the pipeline gets built.
The Conservative Party has picked up every seat in Alberta, except for Edmonton Strathcona, where the NDP won.
