The final list of candidates in the 2008 election has been published at the Elections Canada website here (http://www.elections.ca/ele/40ge/loc/loc.pdf). And I’m glad to see there are actually 26 Libertarian Party of Canada candidates so my last post was off by 2. I think that means more voices promoting the freedom agenda in Canada and it will help the libertarian movement become larger and have more impact on the society.
Provinces represented in final list: Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, Saskatchewan. We almost had candidates in Manitoba (http://manitobaliberty.wordpress.com/), Quebec and Nova Scotia, not sure. I think everyone who didn’t make it should try to keep up their spirits and try speaking out in other ways – during the election and after – and building up informal networks.
There is contact information on candidates here
Some of the candidates have web pages –
I heard Stephanie Wilson, candidate in Ajax–Pickering on CFRB Radio a couple of days ago. Way to go, Stephanie!
Just to mention news about my own riding of Scarborough–Rouge River, there is an event scheduled for Wednesday October 8 which is open to the public and all candidates so they can meet. Location: Centennial College Residence and Conference Centre, 940 Progress Ave., Scarborough. 7-8:30 is the Public Policy Forum where the 4 major parties debate the “ideas” they want to impose on us. And the important part for the rest of the candidates lasts from 8:30 – 10:00 where hopefully some of you liberty supporters out there can drop by for a visit (and you can remind me to go too ) – and we can talk about building the freedom movement.
