Premier Doug Ford's Progressive Conservatives are set to face voters for the first time in two years with a pair of byelections Thursday in Ottawa.

But the Tories are not holding out much hope for winning seats in Ottawa-Vanier and Orléans that had been held by the Liberals.

"Look, I suspect that the Liberals will remain strong in that area, but our candidates have been working very, very hard," government house leader Paul Calandra said Wednesday at Queen's Park.
