An Ontario NDP MPP who is also the party’s education critic is expected to announce a leadership campaign in Toronto on Thursday afternoon.
Davenport MPP Marit Stiles has scheduled a media appearance in Toronto’s Bloor Street and Lansdowne Avenue area for 12 p.m. on Thursday afternoon.
The invitation says Stiles will make an announcement. “She will be joined by supporters and special guests,” it says.
Sources confirmed to Global News she is expected to announce a bid to succeed Andrea Horwath as leader of the Ontario NDP and Official Opposition.
Stiles was first elected to her Davenport seat in June 2018, gaining it from the Ontario Liberals. She was also previously elected as a Toronto District School Board trustee.
