Georgios S. Giousmas – Justin Trudeau and the Liberals won the most seats in the election, this time with only a minority. Four Greek Canadians have been elected in their respective ridings: Niki Ashton, Emmanouella Lambropoulos, Annie Koutrakis and Peter Fragiskatos. One Greek Canadian candidate, Tom Pentefountas, did not win in his riding, despite his involvement in the community and his experience in politics. His riding, Laval-Les Iles, is a Liberal stronghold that was won by Faycal El Khouri. El Khoury has always been very present in the riding and he has ensured the Greek community has received its fair share and more of federal funding despite rumours to the contrary.
