TORONTO, Jan. 24, 2013 /CNW/ - With special coverage planned from this Friday, Jan. 25 right through to Sunday, Jan. 27, CTV News is the go-to source for this weekend's Ontario Liberal Party leadership race. Beginning with CP24's YOUR NEXT PREMIER, coverage starting Friday at 7 p.m., CTV News will bring Ontarians breaking news through minute-by-minute coverage all weekend long.
Correspondents from CP24, CTV NEWS, CTV News Channel, CTVNews.ca, and CP24.com have mobilized to bring the complete story right up until the new Liberal leader is named, and beyond.
CP24's live comprehensive coverage of the party's convention, YOUR NEXT PREMIER, begins Friday evening with Premier Dalton McGuinty's farewell speech, followed by full coverage throughout the weekend, including the first ballot results at 12:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, straight through until the new leader is chosen.

Throughout the weekend, Ann Rohmer and Stephen LeDrew are live from the heart of the convention, with special political guests providing additional commentary.
