Issue Advocate

An Issue Advocate is a (confirmed, likely or anticipated) candidate in the next Canadian federal election, e.g. 2005 who is the Green Party of Canada's best author, debater and speaker on a given topic.

Sometimes this amounts to trivial changes in name, e.g. Oceans and Fisheries not Fisheries and Oceans.
