Carla Neal (Marxist-Leninist Party)
Brian Rundle (People’s Party of Canada)
Peter Schwarzhoff (Liberal Party)

take note:
- Taking selfies or making a recording in voting stations is not allowed. Also, taking a picture of a marked ballot and posting it on social media is a violation of the secret ballot rules in the Canada Elections Act and therefore illegal.
