Currently four candidates in Perth-Wellington riding

by Mike Robinson

PERTH-WELLINGTON - With campaigns gearing up across Canada for a May 2 election, this riding is no exception, as signs are popping up across the region.

Locally, four people are in the running for the riding currently held by Conservative Gary Schellenberger.

The list of candidates to date includes: Schellenberger, Liberal Bob McTavish, New Democrat Ellen Papenburg and the Green Party’s John Cowling.

That does not rule out additional individuals registering in the coming weeks. In the 2008 federal election, Perth-Wellington also had candidates from the Christian Heritage and Marxist-Leninist parties.

At that time, Schellenberger was elected with roughly 48% of the vote. He has represented Perth-Wellington since 2004, making this his fourth campaign since then.

Although signs are already going up across the riding, Elections Canada’s official nomination deadline is April 11. A complete list of confirmed candidates will be available April 13.

The Wellington Federation of Agriculture is hosting an all candidates meeting at the Arthur Community Centre (lower hall) on April 14 to discuss agriculture issues in the county.

The meeting starts at 8pm.
