A score of engineers running for Parliament
Engineers Canada, the Ottawa-based national engineering organization, has a special Federal Election website which includes information about the needy state of infrastructure in Canada and projects engineering labour needs for the next decade.
The site also has a list of professional engineers who are running as candidates in the federal election.
The 21 candidates are spread fairly evenly among three of the parties: five are in the Conservative Party, six in the Green Party, seven are with the Liberals. Only three are New Democrats.
Thirteen of the hopeful contenders hail from Ontario. Only one is from British Columbia.
Engineers Canada stresses it does not support any of the candidates, but provides a list of websites for accessing information.
