John Fraser, Interim Leader of the Ontario Liberal Party

John Fraser, Interim Leader of the OLP must have been wearing a huge smile when he said: “I want to thank all of the grassroots Ontarians who have joined our party in record numbers, and each of the leadership candidates and their teams for the hard work they are doing to engage with communities across our province”.

The news of record-breaking membership numbers follows the Ontario Liberal Party’s two by-election victories in Scarborough–Centre and Kanata–Carleton.

“Ontarians are fed up with Doug Ford’s billion-dollar backroom deals, and are finding a new home in the Ontario Liberal Party,” added Fraser. “Ontario Liberals will continue to fight for the brighter future that families deserve, and build on this momentum as we prepare for another by-election in Kitchener Centre, and success in 2026.”

Potential members of student clubs on post-secondary campuses have another two weeks, until Tuesday, September 26th, 2023 to register as a member.
Voting will take place via ranked ballots on Saturday, November 25, 2023, and Sunday, November 26, 2023, with ballot counting and the announcement of round-by-round results taking place on Saturday, December 2, 2023.
