ONTARIO NDP LEADERSHIP RACE

LIVE BLOG FROM THE CONVENTION FLOOR

The big day

It’s been almost 9 months since Howard Hampton announced that he was stepping down as leader of the ONDP.  For the first time in 13 years, the party was thrown into a leadership race.  Four candidates came forward to run for the position, and they’ve been campaigning tirelessly for months.  A total of 44 debates across the province gave party members a chance to hear the candidates and ask questions.  Here’s how the final few hours will unfold:
