Stories just hitting the news now.

Liberal MPP's Monte Kwinter and Mario Sergio have announced their resignations and Ted McMeekin is expected to announce his resignation tomorrow.

Rats, sinking ship and so on.

Although Kwinter is 86 and in poor health. Don't know the last time he was even in attendance at Queens Park.

86, doesn't show up for work, and still employed by the government? Such a weird system we have.

So odd that they wouldn't want to be attached to the provincial Liberal party at this point in history.

As an MPP she is not employed by the Government, she is technically employed by Ontario voters as they are the ones who decides who gets a job as an MPP. Administration are employed by the government, elected officials form and give direction to the government.

Why the hell would Ontario voters employee a 86 year old who does not show up for work????

Because Liberal voters would cast a ballot for a bag of dog s--t as long as it had a big red L on the bag.

Sorry, true. Should have said, How can you run for office at that age? Why would you elect an MLA....sorry, MPP...that could not possibly represent......Oh, I see soulchaser has answered this next question.

By-elections should be interesting. As for resigning, you may wish to distance yourself from Don Wynno but you can never leave the familia.

It would be more fun if they jumped off the Rainbow Bridge at Niagara Falls. That would be entertainment.

In October 2016, it was reported that Kwinter was now living in a nursing home!

Maybe the King of Socks would join them, considering what a photo-op it would be?

There isn't a single name on that list I'd want to see with the Ontario PC's.

That list is the entire Ontario Cabinet, except for Wynne.

If the entire Cabinet quit, that would be a show of non confidence in Wynne.

David Orazietti,
He couldn't cross the floor. Resigned his seat and the PC Party won it earlier this year.
