You've got to be Kidding

I know it’s called the Family Coalition Party, but they seem to be taking the name a little too literally. According to the candidate list at Elections Ontario, the Carvalho family will be holding down the FCP fort almost single-handedly with an impressive slate of six candidates:

  • Ajax-Pickering: Andrew Carvalho
  • Scarborough-Rouge River: Joseph Carvalho
  • Toronto Centre: Nicholas Carvalho
  • York Centre: Marilyn Carvalho
  • York-Simcoe: Victor Carvalho
  • York West: Julia Carvalho

Not to be outdone, the Kidd family is running a staggering eight candidates for the same party:

  • Beaches East York: Joel Kidd
  • Don Valley East: Ryan Kidd
  • Don Valley West: Daniel Kidd
  • Parkdale-High Park: Marilee Kidd
  • Richmond Hill: Lisa Kidd
  • Thornhill: Nathan Kidd
  • Timmins-James Bay: Steve Kidd
  • Toronto-Danforth: Michael Kidd

Of the 63 registered FCP candidates¬† as of September 11,¬† an unbelievable 22% belong to these two families. A candidate pool that shallow seems kind of creepy to me. It’s a good thing these families aren’t any bigger.
