Whether it was intended or not, Timmins-James Bay MP Charlie Angus is now a legal leadership candidate for the NDP. At least that’s according to the rules of Elections Canada even though Angus hasn’t officially declared himself a candidate. The Timmins Press says Angus paid money to create a website over his potential leadership bid. The newspaper says under the rules of Elections Canada when you incur a campaign cost, you legally become a candidate. Despite this rule, Angus can still decide not to run but for now he’s classified as a candidate. The website is designed to measure public support on whether Angus should run for the leadership. In addition, the site is asking for volunteers and even addresses future campaign donations.
