It's the way the Contempt Party rolls.

The results of a judicial recount was declared in the Québec riding of Montmagny-L'Islet-Kamouraska-Rivière-du-Loup.

It confirmed NDP candidate François Lapointe won that election, beating the Con incumbent Bernard Généreux, who was declared the winner on election night, with a 110-vote lead over his closest rival. From
However when the result was validated the following day, Lapointe came out on top by five votes.

The slim margin of victory prompted a judicial recount that began Wednesday and concluded Friday evening with Lapointe being confirmed the winner by nine votes.
Généreux played the sore loser, muttering vague threats about the recount, claiming a travesty of democracy. It was the habitual Con spin about what actually happened; during the first counting of ballots on election night, 100 votes for Lapointe had been incorrectly awarded to the Green Party.

It makes you wonder about all those GTA ridings the Cons claimed, doesn't it?

This loss leaves Contempt leader SHithead with only five Québec MPs from whom to choose possible cabinet ministers. One of those is Maxime "MPty Suit" Bernier.
