EDSON, Alta. - An Alberta town has had another change to its council.
After the municipal election on Oct. 21, there was just one vote separating Jim Gomuwka and John Walker in a race for the sixth council seat in Edson.
The recount resulted in a tie between Gomuwka and Walker, so a draw was held and Walker's name was drawn, so he won the final spot on council.
But a judicial recount was requested, and on Friday, a judge performed an official review of the spoiled and rejected ballots.
The judge determined the tie was actually between Gomuwka and Troy Sorensen.
