Former Liberal Jody Wilson-Raybould has kept her seat as an independent candidate in the Vancouver Granville riding.

In a very tight race, Wilson-Raybould has received 14,866 votes so far, according to Elections Canada.

Taleeb Noormohamed of the Liberals has received 12, 301 votes and the Conservative’s Zach Segal has received 10, 503.

Votes are still coming in and final numbers have not been confirmed.

Wilson-Raybould resigned from Justin Trudeau’s cabinet earlier this year. The former attorney general accused the Prime Minister and his office of pressuring her to drop a criminal prosecution against multi-billion dollar Quebec engineering firm SNC-Lavalin.

In April, Wilson-Raybould was kicked out of Liberal caucus and announced she would run again as in independent in May
