SDSG – It’s just over a week into the 2021 election campaign and the local NDP riding association is the only party without a candidate.
Officials with the riding association had anticipated a candidate was to be announced this weekend but that has since changed. The party continues to seek a candidate before the August 30, 2 p.m. nomination deadline. It is expected that if a local candidate is not found by the deadline, the party will designate a candidate to represent the NDP in the election.
Incumbent Member of Parliament Eric Duncan long secured his party’s nomination for the upcoming election.
Denis Moquin has put his name forward to carry the Liberal flag in the riding this election. That nomination was confirmed on August 24.
