A familiar face will be returning to Ottawa to represent Perth-Wellington.

Conservative John Nater was re-elected as MP for the area in the 43rd Canadian General Election and he will serve in his second term on when Parliament is summoned.

Since the Perth-Wellington riding was created in 2004, the area has been represented by the Conservative Party.

Although his party won’t be in control of the government, Nater says there’s much to be learned from this election.

“We’ll have to go back and look hard at some of the policies we proposed and make sure that when the time comes for the next election that we are ready to present a positive Conservative vision to the Canadian people.”

Liberal Candidate Pirie Mitchell came in second in the riding while NDP candidate Geoff Krauter was third.
