TORONTO -- The Ontario Progressive Conservatives have nominated their candidate for a byelection in an east Toronto riding.
Raymond Cho is currently a city councillor for the area and a longtime resident of Toronto.
The Scarborough-Rouge River seat has been vacant since Liberal backbencher Bas Balkissoon abruptly resigned in March.
Premier Kathleen Wynne has six months to call a byelection to replace Balkissoon, but no date has yet been set for the vote.
