The Sudbury riding has its New Democratic Party candidate for the next federal election.

Beth Mairs has been named as the candidate for the party.

A former social worker, she is also a filmmaker who also previously ran an outdoor adventure company for women.

A socialist activist, Mairs says she wants to see a commitment to sharing the wealth so Canadians don’t have the income disparities that are seen now.

She will run against incumbent Liberal, Paul Lebevre, Conservative Party candidate, Pierre St. Amant and the Green Party’s Bill Crumplin.
