Nowhere is this more evident than in the Ottawa area, where every single riding returned an incumbent MP. Within the region, Ottawa Centre wasn't satisfied merely to produce the same outcome as the previous election. No, we apparently did our darndest to produce the same vote counts as for the previous election. Take a look...
Aside from a group of about 2800 Liberal voters who apparently chose to sit on their hands (the drop in total vote being remarkably close to the drop in the Liberal vote), the differences are in the noise. Fewer than 800 votes changed hands (1.2% of valid votes cast), and they all went to the incumbent.
One could take that as a rebuke to the electoral process itself--or at least a rejection of the decision to call an election. ("Damn it, we voted like this, and we meant it! Now stop bothering us.") But the overall turnout remains pretty high in Ottawa Centre. At 71%, it is well above the national average, at least. So if Ottawa Centre voters are perhaps hide-bound traditionalists, they remain engaged hide-bound traditionalists.
