MPP Michael Chan has decided to leave provincial politics after serving his Markham constituents for more than a decade. Chan announced that he won’t be seeking re-election in the June election.

“Over the past eleven years it has been an honour to help build a more fair, progressive Ontario; where everyone has the opportunity to thrive and prosper,” he said. “We have shown the world that a compassionate, peaceful and inclusive society offers the best quality of life for all. My message to Ontarians is to stay engaged, to get involved, and most of all, to exercise and never take for granted your privilege to vote that ensures your voice is heard.”
