Olivia ChowOlivia Chow, Olivia Chow has confirmed that it will run to replace her late husband, Jack Layton, leader of the NDP. She was considered a serious contender, with many people calling for it to carry on the legacy of her husband.

But since he decided against it, political scientist Doreen Barrie believes there may be more names on the ballot. Barrie says he will open the race, and until we see more people outside the House of Commons to take a photo.

Some people openly considering running, including deputy leader Thomas Mulcair and Libby Davies, NDP and President Brian Topp.

No one has officially launched the campaign. The National Development Plan of the Federal Council meets on Friday to set a date and place for the leadership convention. Chow also said that details of the type of cancer that ultimately killed her husband, Jack Layton, will be kept private.

“Jack’s desire is that we do not talk about precisely what,” he told The Toronto Star. “We want to give other cancer patients the kind of hope they deserve and should have.”
