Paul Ferreira got in touch with your humble correspondent earlier today. He will be running; the official nomination will happen this Friday, at his new campaign office, which will be in Weston, at 2105 Weston Road. The NDP website, however, does not yet list him as a candidate.
The NDP (and the Tories) are off to a slow start all around the province, according to the Star.
YHC sent messages to the Tory candidate, Andrew Ffrench, today. I have not heard back.
