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.
