Niagara Falls is still NDP orange. Wayne Gates has been re-elected as MPP with more than 30,000 votes. PC candidate Chuck McShane was the runner-up and about 9,000 votes behind Gates. Gates is thanking the people of Niagara Falls, Fort Erie and Niagara-on-the-Lake for re-electing him. He says he will continue to work hard to earn your trust every single day. Wayne Gates has represented the Niagara Falls riding since the by-election in 2014 after the resignation of former MPP Kim Craitor.
