The List

Today is the last day you can throw your hat in the ring as a candidate in the general election. Nominations close today, and while the full list won't be available until Thursday, officially, the Guelph Mercury has this list which includes all the names from the by-election plus two more.

Libertarian Party - Philip Bender
Marxist-Leninist - Manuel Couto
Communist Party - Drew Garvie
Animal Alliance Environment Voters Party - Karen Levenson
NDP - Tom King
Marijuana Party - Kornelis Klevering
Conservative Party - Gloria Kovach
Green Party - Mike Nagy
Liberal Party - Frank Valeriote

Apparently, independent John Turmel says he's also running in Guelph, but I guess that's still to be determined.

Just what the Marxist-Leninists needed, that pesky Communist Party siphoning off more of their votes :P
