Toronto - June 19, 2013 - Multiple media sources are reporting that Bob Rae, MP for Toronto Centre will be stepping down from his seat at Parliament Hill. The announcment could come as early as today.

Rae 64, served as the interim Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada until Justin Trudeau won the leadership race.

He was previously leader of the Ontario New Democratic Party and the 21st Premier of Ontario, from 1990 to 1995.

Wikipedia describes his career as follows - "In 2006, he was a candidate for the leadership of the Liberal Party of Canada, finishing in third place on the third ballot. He had originally been a Liberal in the 1970s before joining the NDP. Rae returned to the Canadian House of Commons on March 31, 2008 as a Liberal MP after winning a March 17, 2008 by-election holding the riding that had previously been held by Liberal Bill Graham. He was re-elected in the 2008 general election. Rae ran again as a candidate for the party leadership but withdrew on December 12, 2008. He was re-elected in the Toronto Centre riding in the 2011 general election and was named interim leader of the Liberal Party weeks later, replacing Michael Ignatieff."
