CGA will have full slate for Oct. 13 civic election As the Sept. 11 nomination deadline for the Oct. 13 civic electfom draws closer, tire Civic Govern ment Association is moving closer to its goal of a full slate of candidates. Bill Russell, who chaired a CGA meeting Wednesday in the absence of Charles Virtue, as- sociation president, said the group was hoping for a full state and was "moving toward" this objective. He added that while the as- sociation intended lo present a full slate of candidates to a public nominating meeting Sept. 8 in the Fleelwood-Baw- den Elementary School au- ditorium, it was also looking for nominations from the floor. He advised anyone wishing to attend the meeting as a nom- inee to bring along a nomina- tor to present him at the meet- ing. The CGA is a non-partisan group whose aim is to ensure there are enough candidates to fill all vacancies on local elec- tive bodies. All positions on city council and hospital and schwl boards are open this year for the first time, under a 1968 change in the Municipal Gov- ernment Act, the full effect of which is now being felt. The CGA will organize and pay for a moderate campaign for each candidate It endorses. Motorists urged to take extra care Retired Thomas E.
