Residents of Bradford West Gwillimbury will officially have a new MP on Feb. 25.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called a byelection for the York-Simcoe riding, which was left vacant last fall after longtime MP Peter Van Loan retired from politics to join a Toronto law firm as a partner.
Scot Davidson, an entrepreneur from Sutton, won the Conservative Party of Canada nomination in October to represent the riding in the interim.
Shaun Tanaka, a former professor, is the Liberal candidate running in the byelection.
Jessa McLean, a workers’ rights activist, is the NDP candidate.
Trudeau also called byelections for the ridings of Burnaby South, B.C., and Outremont, Que.
