NDP PROMISE CANDIDATE FOR GPR
A senior official for Ontario’s NDP promises the party will have a candidate’s name on the June election ballot for Glengarry-Prescott-Russell.
Karla Webber- Gallagher, executive director for NDP Ontario, confirmed, in a phone interview March 22, that the party expects to have candidates confirmed in every riding, before the official writ drops for the provincial election scheduled for June.
“Yes, there absolutely will be a candidate,” Webber-Gallagher said, regarding NDP plans for the Glengarry-PresscottRussell riding. “We’re expecting to field a very strong candidate.”
At present there is no confirmed NDp candidate for the GPR. Webber-Gallagher said the party is working “on a case by case basis” to confirm candidates for all ridings not already covered by an incumbent NDP MPP.
The official start for the provincial election campaign period is May 9. The election itself is June 7.—Gregg Chamberlain
