Two candidates — Alok Mukherjee and Jarren Richards — are seeking the nomination to be the NDP’s candidate for Toronto-St. Paul’s in the upcoming federal election.
Registered members of the federal party’s Toronto-St. Paul’s riding association will choose their candidate during a meeting on Sunday, Sept. 8, from 3 pm to 5:30 pm in the Flora McRea Auditorium at Timothy Eaton Church, 230 St. Clair Ave. West (accessible entrance on Warren Road).
