Another Ontario cabinet minister has announced that he is to resign his post.
Seniors Affairs Minister Mario Sergio issued a letter on Friday saying that he would be resigning from his ministerial role but staying on as MPP for York West for the time being.
He also stated that he will continue his ministerial duties until a replacement is announced by Premier Kathleen Wynne.
The news comes just one day after Attorney General Madeleine Meilleur announced that she is to step down, while Municipal Affairs and Housing Minister Ted McMeekin also resigned earlier this week.
Speaking of his decision, Sergio said its been a ”tremendous honour and privilege” to serve the people of Ontario, but that the time has come to ”make way for a new generation of great ideas.”
The rash of resignations come as rumours swirl that Premier Kathleen Wynne will shuffle her cabinet on Monday.
