As of Friday, the NDP had nominated 59 candidates, and the party's provincial secre- tary, Hart Horn, says he ex- pects at least 70 candidates will be selected by nomination day Aug. 16.

Seven merchants in the Col- lege Shopping Mall have sent a letter to council asking that the current bylaw he kept until revisions are made.
