SCARBOROUGH, ON, Aug. 10, 2016 /CNW/ - The Ontario None of the Above Party (NOTA) and Above Znoneofthe, the person, are combining forces for the Scarborough-Rouge River provincial by-election on Sept. 1, 2016.
Both NOTA Party candidate and leader Greg Vezina and Independent Candidate Above Znoneofthe, ran in the recent Feb. 11, 2016, Whitby-Oshawa by-election, finishing fifth and sixth out of ten candidates.
The NOTA Party campaigns for the 3Rs of Direct Democracy; Referendum, Recall and electoral and legislative Reforms.
"Anybody who cares enough to get the None of the Above option on the ballot to legally change their name to it is welcome in the NOTA Party and would make a great candidate. That really took some balls," said None of the Above Party leader Greg Vezina.
"We both want the same thing, to see the people have a choice to say they do not want to vote for any of the big party candidates, but still want to show that they can vote, and that the parties will have to work harder to earn their vote, not just be Best of the Worst," said candidate Above Znoneofthe.
