The real beauty is that I don't live in Calgary to have to be really concerned about this.

*eyes ti-guy*. Again, I say, thanks...thanks a lot.

And yes, anyone can file nomination papers. After they get 100 voters inside the ward to sign off on the nomination and a 500$ bond is put up. I think you have to get a certain percentage of the vote to have that reimbursed.

If M. Evans was just getting his papers yesterday, and the deadline is september 17 to register as a ward candidate, he's got about 1.5 months to get official and raise whatever monies he can, to attempt some sort of presence beside a long time ward representative of reality biased stature.

Whether he will accrue the sort of political fame as the Aftergoods in ward 10, only time will tell. Someone of his political leanings likely feels compelled to get out there and oppose a LeftCentrist like Bob Hawkesworth.

Perhaps he'll buy up options for Bob's website domain name and redirect them to fun places. That seems a popular tactic with him. Certainly the high minded sort of behaviour /I/ want to see in my city rep.

Well...I do feel your pain...and lest you think I'm some snotty Easterner, I do in fact mostly like Calgary (although the presence of Richard Evans in that city does cast a pall over the place). Still, you've got the Rockies...

The good news is that Hawkesworth has been around a long time, and is seen by most as a respectable alderman.

That makes it pretty hard for someone like Evans to knock him over - even if he gets the backing of political bully Craig Chandler.

Is Richard planning on smearing Hawkesworth with the accusation of pedophilia? Does Richard have some nugget of information that he could use to that effect?

Hawkesworth should be warned...

feh, I doubt he can get 100 of his neighbors to sign up without going around handing out banknotes.
