With two months left until the official nomination date, 17 candidates have registered their intentions to run in a by-election to fill the Ward 12 vacancy on Edmonton City Council. Triggered by the resignation of Amarjeet Sohi, who was elected as the Liberal Member of Parliament for Edmonton-Mill Woods, the by-election will be held on Feb. 22, 2016.
Some new additions to the list include transit instructor Preet Toor, Catholic School trustee Laura Thibert, past Wildrose Party candidate Kyle McLeod, and Edmonton & District Labour Council past president Brian Henderson.

Needs more candidates…
So, has there ever been a municipal by-election with more candidates than voters? Asking for a friend…
Rakesh Patel, anyone who shows off their chumminess with former PC crooks on their websites is not going to get my vote! Bad move.
It would be nice to know how many of these candidates are actually living in. Ward 12?? So far out of 17-19 candidates running, when I click on their website only two or so actually state they live in ward12. Anybody know where I can find out?
I would love to vote a person who is born in Canada not in any other country. This is because he or she know the political structure very well and honest by their mind setup.
