MPP Amanda Simard, who quit the Progressive Conservatives in protest of Premier Doug Ford's cuts to French-language services, is bolting to the Liberals.

The delayed defection comes after Simard (Glengarry-Prescott-Russell) had been sitting as an Independent since leaving the government caucus in November 2018.

"This was not an easy decision to make and to be taken lightly," she told reporters Thursday at Queen's Park.
