Tamara Johnson has entered Thunder Bay’s at-large city councilor race.
Johnson, whose controversial stance of First Nation business practices led the Ontario Conservatives to rescind her candidacy in the recent provincial election, then drew fire as the Libertarian Party candidate in Thunder Bay-Superior North for a full-page advertisement in the local daily newspaper that led First Nations groups to picket the paper’s office.
Johnson finished fifth in her riding, garnering 3.3 per cent of the vote.
Johnson is the 13th candidate to file in the at-large race. Other candidates include Naomi Abotossaway, Iain Angus, Diane Armstrong, Andrew Brigham, Vanessa Catalan, Kimberly Coreau, Larry Hebert, Christopher Holland, Robin Rickards, Aldo Ruberto, Wolfgang Schoor and Barry Streib.
Henry Wojak is expected later Thursday to become the fourth mayoral candidate to file, joining incumbent Keith Hobbs, former mayor Ken Boshcoff and Douglas MacKay.
