The Conservative incumbent in Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound is looking for his second consecutive win in a federal election.
Alex Ruff took the mantle from five-term MP Larry Miller back in 2019 after he retired from politics. Ruff then went on to win the riding, earning just over 46 percent of the vote.
In this election, there are 89,386 registered voters. 20,538 of them, or 23 percent, voted early.
Housing and economics carried a lot of weight through the campaign. But there were also questions about an energy project on federal land near Meaford and what that might look like in the future.
In total there are six candidates for the riding, Ruff along with Liberal Anne Marie Watson, NDP Christopher Neudorf, Green candidate Michelle Lawrence, the PPC’s Anna-Marie Fosbrooke and Independent Reima Kaikkonen.
