NDP candidate Noel Duignan "felt pretty good" about his third-place finish in the riding Monday night. "I did as well as I expected to do," said Duignan, 57, of Georgetown who served as the NDP MPP for Halton North from 1990 to 1995 and ran as the NDP candidate in the last federal election. Duignan received 6,795 votes (12.4 per cent of the votes) Monday compared to 5,974 in the 2004 election. "I think a lot of people were unhappy with the Liberal government and they saw the NDP as a safer alternative than the Conservatives," said Duignan. "It was an extremely tough campaign," he said, adding it was held at the wrong time of the year. On his party's national showing, Duignan said he thought they would have picked up a few more seats in B.C. Duignan said it was too early to say what his future political plans would be.
