And now for something completely trivial. There will be three sets of candidates with the same names on the ballot this coming October:

Robert Kitchen

The most recent pairing came last night, when businessperson Robert Kitchen of Nackawic in New Brunswick (pictured left) won a two-way contested nomination to represent the NDP in the open riding of Tobique-Mactaquac, NB. He joins his namesake Robert Kitchen, a chiropractor from Estevan, SK (right) who won a six-way contested nomination last November to represent the Conservatives in the open seat of Souris-Moose Mountain.

Erin Weir

Previous to that, we got the pairing of Erin A. Weir a registered nurse from Raymond, AB (left) who was acclaimed the NDP candidate in Medecine Hat-Cardston-Warner, AB on July 27 of this year, joining Erin M.K. Weir (right), the Steelworkers economist who won a two-way contest for the NDP in the Saskatchewan riding of Regina-Lewvan over a year ago on June 22.

Scott Andrews

The first potential couplet emerged when Scott James Andrews (left), a caregiver for adults with disabilities, won a two-way contested nomination for the NDP in Vancouver Quadra on November 23 of last year. Two weeks earlier, then-Liberal MP Scott Andrews of Avalon, NL (right) was suspended as the Liberal candidate for that riding, and suggested he could run for re-election as an Independent. He confirmed he would do so this past August 10.

So, if you're compiling candidate lists, don't do a double-take if you see two candidates with the same names. Double-check the party and riding before you accidentally eliminate a dupe that wasn't.

    I’d like to see a story on how many union people/bosses are running for the NDP.

  2. Ian says:

    Have two candidates with the same name ever appeared on the same ballot? (Ie running for different parties in the same constituency.)

  3. Philip Yu says:

    John Turner, ex-PM (Liberal) and John Turner (Rhinoceros) in Vancouver Quadra, 1988.

  4. Jeff says:

    Bernard Trottier (CPC) and Phil Trotter (NDP) in Etobicoke-Lakeshore.

  5. Well, if we’re going with similar names, I have a few others:

    • Jack Harris (NDP in St. John’s East, NL) vs John Harris (NDP in Haldimand-Norfolks, ON)
    • Khalid Ahman (NDP in Don Valley East, ON) vs Khalis Ahmed (NDP in Calgary Signal Hill, AB)
