The Northern Ontario Party has created two more riding associations and named two more candidates to run in next year’s provincial election.

The NOP now has an association in Algoma-Manitoulin and selected Tommy Lee as its candidate.

The other association was formed in Timiskaming-Cochrane and the NOP candidate there is Shawn P. Poirier.

Both ridings are held by the NDP.

Next up for the NOP is to create a riding association in Thunder Bay-Atikokan which the Liberals own.
