Michele Audette, the former president of the Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC), has gone down to defeat in her bid to win a Liberal seat in the Quebec riding of Terrebonne.
Audette lost to Bloc Quebecois candidate Michel Boudrias while the NDP candidate Charmaine Borg came in third.
The former NWAC president became the Terrebonne candidate after losing the Liberal nomination in the Quebec riding of Manicougan.
Audette’s party, however, achieved a Liberal majority government after a red wave swept across the country.
