Election results indicate Lisa Christensen of Projet Montréal beat incumbent Manuel Guedes of Équipe Denis Coderre by 32 votes for the position of borough councillor for La Pointe-aux-Prairies district in Rivière-des-Prairies—Pointe-aux-Trembles borough.

Christensen is a mechanic who hosts CJAD’s The Car Show.

Montreal’s election office announced Tuesday this would be the only recount.
