2000 By-Elections – Official Voting Results



December 2000

This report deals with the three federal by-elections held in 2000, in the electoral districts of Kings–Hants, Nova Scotia, Okanagan–Coquihalla, British Columbia, and St. John’s West, Newfoundland.

I am pleased to publish the report to satisfy the requirements of the Canada Elections Act and to ensure that Canadians have accurate and complete information on the by-elections. It is through such public reports that Parliament and Elections Canada make the Canadian electoral system more open and transparent.

This report presents the results of the vote, by polling division, for each of the three by-elections, in accordance with paragraph 193(b) of the Canada Elections Act, R.S.C., c. E-2. Subsection 195(1) of the Act also requires me to report on the administration of each of the by-elections. A report was published in July 2000 on the by-election in St. John’s West, and a second report, published in November 2000, covers the other two by-elections.

Information on contributions and election expenses declared by the candidates in these by-elections will be available in April 2001 on the Elections Canada Web site (
