Liberal candidate for Cape Breton-Richmond Michel Samson has announced that he will not request recount following the May 30th election. Samson met with his campaign team on Sunday evening and decided not to request a recount after losing the seat by 21 votes to PC candidate Alana Paon.
Samson served as MLA for 19 years in the riding of Cape Breton Richmond. Samson says that: “I am grateful for the many colleagues from both the NDP and PC caucuses I have worked with during my time as MLA. I always respected and admired their efforts on behalf of their constituents with the goal of making our province stronger.”
