Date set for Ontario Liberal leadership vote
The Ontario Liberal party will hold a convention on January 25th to choose a new leader to take the reins from outgoing Premier Dalton McGuinty.
McGuinty has said his successor will decide when to recall the legislature, which he prorogued when he announced his surprise resignation last Monday.
The prorogation has infuriated the Tories and N-D-P, who are calling on McGuinty to reverse his decision and let M-P-P's get back to work.
Tory M-P-P Lisa MacLeod says there's no reason a Liberal leadership race couldn't be held with the legislature sitting.
The opposition is accusing McGuinty of proroguing the Legislature to avoid more bad publicity over his government's decision to cancel two gas plants at a huge cost to taxpayers.
