The Kitchener-Waterloo by-election

Longtime Progressive Conservative MPP Elizabeth Witmer is resigning as MPP for Kitchener-Waterloo, leaving the door open to a snap byelection which could shift the balance of power at Queen’s Park.

In the October 6, 2011 election, Witmer won the seat with 43.4 per cent of the vote, defeating her Liberal opponent by about 7 per cent.
