Federal byelections set for June 30
Prime Minister Stephen Harper has announced four federal byelections will be held on June 30.
Two will be in the Ontario ridings of Scarborough–Agincourt and Trinity–Spadina, and the others in the Alberta constituencies of Fort McMurray–Athabasca and Macleod.
Fort McMurray–Athabasca was vacated by Conservative MP Brian Jean, who stepped down in January.
Conservative MP Ted Menzies resigned his southern Alberta seat in the riding of Macleod in November to become president and CEO of CropLife Canada.
Spadina–Trininty became vacant when New Democrat Olivia Chow resigned to run for mayor of Toronto.
And in Scarborough–Agincourt, Jim Karygiannis stepped down as a Liberal MP to run for a seat on Toronto city council in a ward that overlaps much of the federal riding.
