Peace region students elect Bob Zimmer in mock vote

Students in Prince George-Prince River-Northern Rockies once again elected Conservative Bob Zimmer as MP in a mock vote held last week.

Forty-nine schools across the region took part in the vote and cast ballots, with students casting 2,892 votes for Zimmer, and giving him just over 50% of the popular vote.

NDP Marcia Luccock finished second, with 972 votes (16.95%); followed by Green Catharine Kendall with 931 (16.23%), Liberal Mavis Erickson with 594 (10.36%), and People's Party candidate Ron Vaillant with 346 (6.03%).

Much like the 2015 Student Vote, Zimmer won locally, but his Conservative party was out nationally.

Students handed Justin Trudeau's Liberals a minority government, with 110 seats in the House and 22.3% of the popular vote.

The NDP formed an opposition with 99 seats and 24.8% of the popular vote.

The Conservative Party won 25.1% of the popular vote and 94 seats.

The Green Party took 18.2% of the popular vote and 28 seats.

All party leaders, except Yves-François Blanchet of the Bloc Québecois, won their seats. The Bloc finished with 1.3% of the vote, and 9 seats.
