TORONTO — Premier Kathleen Wynne has called byelections for Feb. 13 in Thornhill and Niagara Falls.
Voters in those communities will get a chance to tell provincial politicians what they’re thinking ahead of an anticipated spring provincial election.
Before the writ even dropped, opposition parties were accusing the Liberals of buy-election politics with the announcement this week of a new hospital for the Niagara region.
Wynne was at a downtown Toronto LCBO store Wednesday morning for an Ontario grape harvest event — a topic important to the Niagara region as well.
The riding of Niagara Falls became vacant after Liberal MPP Kim Craitor resigned.
Thornhill MPP Peter Shurman stepped down after a very public dispute with PC Leader Tim Hudak.
