The date has been announced for a series of federal by-elections, including one one in Newfoundland/Labrador.
Judy Foote resigned her seat this fall for personal reasons. Her successor in Bonavista-Burin-Trinity will be known on Dec. 11. That’s also election day in three other ridings in Canada.
Foote was this province’s representative in the federal cabinet at the time. Seamus O’Regan, the MP for St. John’s-Mount Pearl South, is now the lone cabinet minister from this province.
