Newmarket-Aurora Progressive Conservative MPP Frank Klees says he won't be running in the next provincial election.

In a release Tuesday night, Klees says he met with PC Leader Tim Hudak to advise him of his decision, but says he will serve until the next general election is called.

Klees says he'll continue to fulfil his critic responsibilities and any others he may be asked to assume as a member of the PC caucus until the next election.

As transportation critic, Klees was the face of PC outrage over the Ornge scandal and Metrolinx spending.

Klees calls the decision ``very difficult'' but says that after almost two decades of public service, the time is right for him to move on to the next chapter of his life.

Klees thanked his wife Jaine, daughter Alissa and son Robert for their support, encouragement and sacrifices during his years in politics.

    That resignation should raise the combined IQ scores of that pathetic bench a couple of points. Well done, Frank ... all for the good of the Ontario Contard Party.

    Now, do the province a big favour and persuade Hudak to follow you out the door.
