Cannan concedes

UPDATE 11:35 P.M

In an unexpected outcome, three-term Kelowna-Lake Country Conservative MP Ron Cannan lost his riding to Liberal candidate Stephen Fuhr.

Cannan took his time waiting for all the polls to close before he came downstairs to his event and conceded defeat.

He stood in front of the diminishing crowd and thanked his supporters for their years of support.

Cannan lost the riding with 40 per cent of votes, beaten by Fuhr with 46 per cent. 


ORIGINAL 

Close to 65 supporters of Kelowna-Lake Country candidate Ron Cannan are anxiously watching the federal election results roll in. 

Cannan and Liberal candidate Stephen Fuhr are currently in a neck-and-neck battle as the final tally comes in.

Many supporters were too anxious to talk about the results and the Liberal majority win. Several voiced aloud their disappointment with the results and with voters for choosing to elect a Liberal government. 

However, when poll results placed Cannan in a slight lead, the crowd let out several loud cheers and many turned to hug each other. 

Cannan was waiting until the final results are in for the riding before coming into the room at the Sherton Four Points, where his party faithful are gathered.
