Toronto Centre MPP announces departure from Ontario Politics

With days until the writ being issued on the Ontario Election, Ontario NDP MPP (Toronto-Centre) announced via social media that she was withdrawing from the election to focus on health.

Suze Morrison, who was first elected in 2018, said she was diagnosed with endometriosis in 2019 and has slowly gotten worse over the last two years, "I’m doing well, but being an MPP is a demanding role and I need to slow down for a while.

"About one in 10 people who menstruate in Canada have endometriosis. This past year I worked closely with Marit Stiles (Ontario MPP) to declare March as Endometriosis Awareness Month," she added.
