Ralph McLean, the recent federal Green candidate for Mill Woods has declared:

Raja Abbas, who ran for Ward 12 in the last general municipal election has told many folks he is running again.

Brian Henderson, a CUPW member and EDLC executive board member is said to be considering a run.

The Catholic Trustee for Mill Woods, Laura Thibert, is also said to be running, although it appears she has nothing official yet.

Looks like it is going to be a busy race. The problem is that I know very few of these individuals and have no idea if they even know the issues in Ward 12. It is going to be interesting.
