With a cabinet shuffle looming at Queen’s Park, one minister’s choosing to step down to support the premier’s goal of gender parity in her inner circle.
Ted McMeekin
Ted McMeekin has announced in a Facebook post that ”Sometimes the best way for a man to advance the equality of women may be to step back and make room at the table.  For me, this is such a time”.
The 68-year-old McMeekin says he’ll stay on as minister of municipal affairs and housing until a replacement’s named and will continue representing the riding of Ancaster-Dundas-Flamborough-Westdale … for now.
He’s not saying if he’ll run again in 2018.
