Conservative MP Glen Motz won the byelection for Medicine Hat – Cardston – Warner on October 24, 2016. Pictured here with his wife Sue, Mr. Motz gives his Thank You speech on the night of the win.

MP Glen Motz sarcastically expressed gratitude to the Liberal Prime Minister after winning a federal byelection by a big margin in southern Alberta.

“I want to thank Justin Trudeau,” Motz said in his victory speech Monday night in Medicine Hat-Cardston-Warner, a riding that Justin Trudeau had recently visited to support Liberal candidate Stan Sakamoto.

“The activity in our campaign absolutely spiked the day he arrived,” Motz said of Trudeau.

Motz took 69.9 per cent (23,932 votes) while Sakamoto received 25.6 per cent (8,778 votes).
