Residents in the federal riding of Bonavista-Burin-Trinity will have a new Member of Parliament in just over a month.
Elections Canada set Monday, Dec. 11 as the date for four byelections across Canada, including the Newfoundland and Labrador district formerly held by Judy Foote for the Liberals, on Sunday.
Foote retired from politics for personal reasons in September.
Elections Canada offices in the district will be open shortly.
Five individuals - Merv Wiseman, Dale Foote, Pete Soucy, Churence Rogers and Larry Guinchard - have already come forward to announce their intentions to seek the Liberal nomination to run in the by-election.
