Ontario Liberal Party members are voting this weekend to select their new leader to go head-to-head with Premier Doug Ford in the 2026 election.
The party has been without a permanent leader since last year, when Steven Del Duca resigned after a dismal 2022 provincial election result for the Liberals.
The four candidates are: Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie, Liberal MP and former provincial cabinet minister Yasir Naqvi, Liberal MP Nate Erskine-Smith and former Liberal MP and current provincial caucus member Ted Hsu.
Voting takes place largely in person today and tomorrow for Liberal members in ridings across the province, with a small number of members in more remote communities voting by mail.
Ballot counting and the announcement of round-by-round results will take place at the Toronto Metro Convention Centre on December 2nd.
