Ontario’s Liberals have appointed an interim leader.
He’s John Fraser – the MPP for Ottawa South – a backbencher in the Liberal government – who was selected after a vote by caucus members, riding association presidents and party executives.
The Liberal caucus – which was reduced to seven members in the recent election – unanimously endorsed Fraser on Wednesday evening.
Outgoing premier Kathleen Wynne resigned as party leader on election night – after her government was defeated by Doug Ford’s Progressive Conservatives who won a strong majority.
The PC’s take power on June 29th.
