Former MPP Arthur Potts announces Ontario Liberal leadership candidacy
Potts joins a race featuring multiple former MPPs
Former member of Kathleen Wynne's government Arthur Potts has announced on Twitter that he's entering the leadership race for the Ontario Liberals.
Potts represented Toronto's Beaches—East York riding between 2014 and 2018.
The official launch of his leadership bid is set to take place on Wednesday morning in Toronto's east end, Potts confirmed in a response to TVO host Steve Paikin on Twitter.
It sure is hard to keep intentions a secret while inviting friends, families and supporters to a launch event. Yes I am officially in next week, but if you want to know why, you’ll have to attend. <a href="https://t.co/K75YbOfrs3">pic.twitter.com/K75YbOfrs3</a>—@ArthurPottsMAC
Other notable leadership candidates include Mitzie Hunter, who served as education minister from 2016 to 2018.
Former transportation minister Steven Del Duca and former community and social services minister Michael Coteau are also among six candidates now in the race.
