Conservative candidate Tim Uppal has defeated Liberal candidate and Environment Minister, in the Edmonton Mill Woods riding.
Uppal narrowly lost to Sohi by just 79 votes in 2015, having been a popular politician and radio personality in the Edmonton area for decades.
Uppal was polling 21 percent higher than Sohi headed into the election. Sohi was considered by many to be a wildly unpopular candidate in the area.
Only 17 percent of Canadians polled believed that Sohi was doing a good job in his position as Environment Minister.
53 percent also stated that he was specifically doing a “bad job.”
Uppal, an active member of the Edmonton community, was an active member of the Sherwood Park Chamber of Commerce and the Sherwood Park Rotary Club, as well as a founding member of the Edmonton Police Community Advisory Council.
