On Thursday, Ontario will have five by-elections. While these by-elections won't change the government, MPP for Elgin-Middlesex-London Jeff Yurek says they're very important.
Yurek, explains that by-elections occur when there are vacancies that must be filled within 6 months. In this case, 5 members of the Liberal Government stepped down from their positions. The areas having the by-elections are Etobicoke-Lakeshore, Ottawa South, Scarborough-Guildwood and Windsor-Tecumseh.
