Tracy Gray returns Kelowna-Lake Country to Conservatives

Gray turns Kelowna blue

Tracy Gray greeted her supporters at the Ramada Hotel after winning the Kelowna-Lake Country riding Monday night.

"I'm really happy to be here and I'm happy to have earned the support and the confidence of the people here," said Gray.

Many of the issues Gray hopes to tackle first include protecting the B.C. lakes, improving mental health and addiction services and focusing on affordability for all.

"We know that it's all about making a difference for people so as many of you know I've been meeting with business owners, farmers, service groups and seniors homes," said Gray.

"At the end of our campaign collectively we have knocked on more than 54,000 doors together."

Kelowna-Lake Country has returned to Tory blue.

Challenger Tracy Gray, a former Kelowna city councillor, has unseated Liberal MP Stephen Fuhr.

Fuhr stole the seat away from the Tories in the 2015 Trudeau wave that saw the Liberals elected to power.

We'll have more to come from Castanet's Miriam Halpenny at the Gray campaign headquarters.
