  Woops -- I just realised I may have been giving a wrong impression.
Don't just talk to the "leading" candidates, of those who seem the
most likely to win.  Talk to all of them.  The more that understand
the issues, the more they may express this at debates, and the more
influence these ideas will have on whoever is elected.

  Elections Canada hasn't started publishing the list of candidates
yet.  I expect to see some Pirate Party folks, and will be curious
which districts will have one.  Already know there is a PP candidate
in Ottawa South as he contacted me directly.
