Leeds-Grenville voting in December by-election

BROCKVILLE – It’s going to be a five week flurry of campaigning across Leeds-Grenville.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has called the long-awaited by-election in the electoral riding of Leeds-Grenville-Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes for Monday, Dec. 3, 2018.

Trudeau made the announcement today (Sunday), facing a Wednesday deadline.

The by-election is to fill the seat left empty after Conservative MP Gord Brown died of a heart attack earlier this year.

Running are Michael Barrett for the Conservatives, Mary Jean McFall for the Liberals, New Democrat Michelle Taylor and Green Party candidate Lorraine Rekmans.

Editor’s note: This story has been corrected from an earlier version to show Lorraine Rekmans is the Green Party candidate, not Derek Morley as earlier reported.
