The next NDP Leadership debate will be missing a familiar face.

Timmins-James Bay MP Charlie Angus will be missing the next debate in Victoria on Wednesday to support a family member.Angus says his sister has been moved into palliative care. He says she supported him at his campaign launch in February, and now it’s his turn to support her.

Angus is one of four people looking to replace the current leader Tom Mulcair.
