Provincial nomination progress, NDP and Greens

Neither the ONDP or GPO have nominated a particularly large slate so far, so I combined them here.

The NDP haven't nominated a whole lot of candidates so far as I can tell, and they so far seemed to have focused on the GTA. I could only find one notice of someone running for an ONDP nomination up North, which I found surprising considering that the party wants to win more seats up there. 3 of the seats so far nominated could be described as target ridings - Ottawa Centre, London-Fanshawe, and York South-Weston.
The Greens obviously don't have any incumbent MPP's, and the focus has seemed to be on Eastern Ontario and the GTA. Of the seats where the Greens could be considered players last time around, only Ottawa Centre has nominated, with the top two targets for the party, Guelph and Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound, still without candidates, although party leader
Mike Schreiner is running in Simcoe-Grey, which could provide a possible boost to the Greens in BGOS, particularly with no incumbent MPP running.

I'll periodically update these maps and have links to other provincial nomination news.
