Conservative MP Kellie Leitch will not seek re-election in 2019.

Posted On: Wednesday, January 24, 2018

"My time in politics has been a genuine privilege, and I will always be thankful to the constituents of Simcoe-Grey for their tremendous support," Leitch said in a statement late Tuesday. "I have concluded, however, that the time has come for me to serve in other ways, including as a surgeon and volunteer."

Conservative MP Kellie Leitch will not seek re-election in 2019.

She gave no specific reason for her departure beyond saying is it time "to return to the public service that is the core of my being." She said she will serve out the rest of her term.

Leitch, a pediatric orthopedic surgeon, was first elected in her Ontario riding in 2011 and made a failed bid for the party's leadership last year.
