Currently, there are candidates who have expressed interest of
running for the Pirate Party of Canada for the Kitchener-Waterloo
riding as well as the Kitchener-Centre riding.
I have invited both candidates to the kwlug meeting on Monday.
A candidate must collect 100 signatures of Electors in their riding
in order to accepted by the election commission. I believe the deadline
for the paperwork is April 10.
