School trustee candidate charged
A woman who ran for a Calgary Public School trustee position last year faces Alberta Election Act charges.
Elections Alberta says it launched an investigation last October after receiving a complaint that an election candidate was ineligible because she was not a Canadian citizen.
A suspect filed a notice of intent to run and a nomination acceptance form and confirmed they had read the requirements and were eligible to run in the election.
Nimra Amjad is charged with signing a candidate’s acceptance form that contains a false statement and making a false statement for a purpose related to an election. She is expected to appear in court on Feb. 13.
