Weirdest election result

by

The strangest election returns come from District 17--- Armdale-Purcells Cove.

For council, 73.83% of voters went for incumbent Linda Mosher. But for mayor, 51.17% of the same voters went for Sheila Fougere.

I'm not saying anything one way or the other about either Mosher or Fougere, but the two were on completely opposite sides of the most visible issue of the past four years--- the Chebucto Road widening--- and there is no love lost between the two in general, as even casual observation of council will attest.

I don't know what motivates people, but I can't make heads or tails out of this vote. Makes no damned sense.
