In Ottawa's last race of the night to be called, city councillor Jenna Sudds has defeated Conservative candidate Jennifer McAndrew.
As of 12:30 a.m., Sudds was leading McAndrew by about 1,500 votes, 41.7 per cent to 37.2 per cent, with about three-quarters of polling stations reporting.
Before CTV News called the race, Sudds addressed supporters around 12:15 a.m., saying she was optimistic that once all the ballots were counted, her campaign would do well.
"We expected a tight race, and it is a tight race," she said.
Minutes later, CTV News declared her the winner.

Close races up for grabs
With no big surprises in the races so far in the Ottawa-area election races, we are still waiting on two key races with no incumbents. And they're close.
In Ottawa Centre, former provincial cabinet minister Yasir Naqvi is leading the NDP's Angella MacEwen by about 1900 votes with 29 per cent of the polls reporting.
At Naqvi's party at The Senate Tavern on Bank Street, CTV's Matt Skube reports a mood of cautious optimism among attendees.
And in Kanata—Carleton, Liberal candidate Jenna Sudds has a thin lead Jennifer McAndrew by about 800 votes over Conservative Jennifer McAndrew, with about 38 per cent of polls reporting.
All eyes are on those two races, which are ridings the Liberals are hoping to hold on to despite the departures of incumbents Catherine McKenna and Karen McCrimmon.

Results are slowly picking up speed, as Elections Canada staff continue to count ballots.
Here’s a look at the results in Ottawa as of 10:20 p.m.
Liberals leading in:
- Ottawa Centre
- Ottawa South
- Ottawa West-Nepean
Conservatives leading in: Carleton
At 10:05 p.m., most ridings are reporting results from one or two polling stations.
In Ottawa, the Liberals are leading in Ottawa Vanier, Ottawa West-Nepean, Ottawa Centre and Nepean.
The Conservatives are leading in Ottawa South.
Outside of Ottawa, the Conservatives are leading in Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke, Lanark-Frontenac-Kingston, Leeds-Grenville-Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes and Stormont-Dundas and Glengarry.

Results are slowly trickling in through the Elections Canada website.

The Green Party is leading in the riding of Gatineau with one poll reporting.
You can check the election results on the CTV News website.
CTV News Ottawa’s Dylan Dyson is in Pembroke tonight, where Conservative incumbent Cheryl Gallant has held the riding since 2000.
Gallant is looking to win an eighth election, first as a Canadian Alliance MP, and then representing the Conservative Party.
With the polls now closed in Ontario, results should be coming in fairly soon.
A reminder: Elections Canada says anyone who is in line at polling station at 9:30 p.m. will still be allowed to vote.
Among the city of Ottawa’s nine ridings, eight of them were represented by Liberal MPs in the last Parliament.
The exception: Carleton, Pierre Poilievre’s riding.
Poilievre was first elected in 2004. He has six federal elections under his belt and has won all of them.
After the Conservatives’ loss in 2019, he spent months gearing up to run for the party’s leadership before announcing in January 2020 he would not pursue the job.
Since then, he has been among the party’s most vocal critics in opposition, particularly regarding the WE Charity scandal.
He released a new ad on Friday touting his record as a bulldog in opposition.
Carleton’s demographics are slowly changing, as the Ottawa suburbs stretch further into formerly rural territory. Poilievre’s closest win was in 2015, when he beat Liberal Chris Rodgers by fewer than 2,000 votes.
But the riding remains Poilievre’s to lose.
This time around, Liberal candidate Gustave Roy, NDP candidate Kevin Hua, Green candidate Nira Dookeran and People’s Party’s Peter Crawley are running against him.
Elections Canada says the tens of thousands of mail-in ballots will not be opened until Tuesday, so we may not know the winners in all ridings this evening.
Two Ottawa ridings were in the top 10 across Canada for the most voting kits issued to voters this election.
Data show more than 8,800 voters in Ottawa Centre and more than 8,100 in Orléans have requested special ballots to vote by mail or at an Elections Canada office.
We are receiving reports of long lines at some polling stations in Ottawa this evening.
One CTV News Ottawa viewer said people were walking away from a polling station on Preston Street due to the lines around 7:30 p.m. Earlier today, there were long lines at the Canadian Museum of Nature , Hintonburg Community Centre and the Courtyard by Marriott Ottawa Downtown Hotel.
Polling stations are open until 9:30 p.m.
If you are in line at 9:30 p.m., you will be allowed to cast a ballot.
CTV’s Matt Skube is in Ottawa Centre tonight, where voters will elect a new Member of Parliament.
Incumbent Liberal Catherine McKenna decided not to seek re-election in the 2021 election. Running for the Liberals in Ottawa Centre is Yasir Naqvi, the former Ottawa Centre MPP and cabinet minister in the Ontario Liberal governments. The NDP candidate is Angella MacEwen, the Conservative Party candidate is Carol Clemenhagen and the Green Party candidate is Angela Keller-Herzog.
The late Paul Dewar was the MP for Ottawa Centre from 2006 to 2015. It was also former NDP leader Ed Broadbent's riding before that, and is held by the NDP provincially. The Liberals have held the riding since 2015.
One riding we’re watching closely tonight: Kanata-Carleton.
Incumbent Liberal Karen McCrimmon is not running for re-election. Local city councillor Jenna Sudds is running for the Liberals to replace her.
She was acclaimed as the candidate the day after McCrimmon announced she wouldn’t run again, citing health concerns.
But the Conservatives have their own popular candidate, Jennifer McAndrew, a local business owner who grew up in Beaverbrook and now lives in Carp. They think they can win the seat.
McCrimmon won the riding by about 4,300 votes in 2019. But the area contains much of the former Carleton—Mississippi Mills riding, which was a Conservative stronghold before the 2015 election.
CTV’s Patricia Boal is in the riding tonight.
CTV News Ottawa’s Stefan Keyes is in the riding of Peterborough-Kawartha tonight.It’s a notable riding because it’s been a bellwether for decades. Since 1965, the candidate elected there has been a member of the party, with the Pierre Trudeau government in 1980 as the only exception.
It’s a key battleground riding this time around, with polls suggesting the Conservatives and Liberals in a dead heat.Incumbent Liberal Maryam Monsef is seeking a third election win. Conservative challenger Michelle Ferreri is tied with her in most polling, with the NDP’ Joy Lachica in third.
Here’s a look at when polls will close across the country, by time zone.
- Newfoundland time: 8:30 p.m. (7 p.m. Ottawa time)
- Atlantic time: 8:30 p.m. (7:30 p.m. Ottawa time)
- Eastern time: 9:30 p.m.
- Central time: 8:30 p.m. (9:30 p.m. Ottawa time)
- Mountain time: 7:30 p.m. (9:30 p.m. Ottawa time)
