Media Advisory - Ward 5 Candidates

Posted On Wednesday September 07, 2022


On Tuesday, September 6, 2022, staff were contacted by a candidate who wished to withdraw his name in the 2022 Municipal Election.

After seeking advice from the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing and obtaining a legal opinion, staff have determined that they are unable to accept the request of Peter Viol to withdraw his nomination for Centre Wellington Councillor Ward 5.   He will continue to be a candidate and his name will appear on the ballot.

According to provisions in The Municipal Elections Act, Section 36, candidates are only permitted to withdraw their nominations prior to 2 p.m. on Nomination Day, that being August 19th.

There continues to be two candidates for Centre Wellington Councillor Ward 5, Peter Viol and Bronwynne Wilton.
