While it passed unanimously at Queen’s Park, nearly half of the PC caucus was absent for the vote, including new member 19-year-old Sam Oosterhoff.

Sam Oosterhoff is running for the Progressive Conservative nomination in the Niagara West Glanbrook byelection.

The MPP for Niagara West-Glanbrook was eligible to join the Legislature Monday following his recent by-election win, but the government says in order to maintain the impression of a ”modern and inclusive party,” leader Patrick Brown delayed Oosterhoff’s swearing-in until at least Wednesday because of his opposition to Bill 28.
The Liberals claim Brown didn’t want his new member to vote against it after making his opposition known on social media.
