Popular Toronto Councillor stepping down to run for Ontario NDP in June

Within 48 hours of incumbent MPP Suzie Morrison stepping down from the position of Ontario NDP candidate for Toronto Centre, the Party has announced that popular Toronto City Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam has been selected as the next candidate.

"To the residents of Ward 13 - Toronto Centre, it is with much gratitude and love that I announce that I will not be seeking re-election for City Council in October. Furthermore, after a great deal of consideration and conversations with my family and close friends, I have decided to put my name forward to seek the NDP nomination to become the next Member of Provincial Parliament for Toronto Centre," Wong Tam said in a post.
