Although considered a safe Liberal seat, there was concern the riding would be snatched by the Progressive Conservative candidate and former Ontario Ombudsman André Marin.

Around 10:20 p.m. just under 50 per cent of polls were reporting a 51.81 per cent lead by Des Rosiers, or 3,271 more than Marin.

The riding has been in Liberal hands since 1971.
