The New Democratic Party has retained the electoral district that includes the northwestern Ontario communities of Manitouwadge and White River.

Michael Mantha took an early lead in Algoma-Manitoulin as voting results came in Thursday evening, continued to pull away, and claimed victory with an overwhelming margin less than half an hour after the polls closed.

This will be Mantha's third consecutive term.

In a statement, he said "I truly enjoy the privilege of representing all the people of Algoma-Manitoulin from Killarney and Nairn Centre to Manitouwadge, and from Providence Bay to Chapleau."

Mantha thanked his challengers for "having the courage" to allow their names to stand in the election.
