The younger Benham plans to distinguish himself from his father by using his middle initials. He plans to appear on the ballot as Donald H.J. Benham.

"We’re distinguishing ourselves with my middle name," he said.

Earlier this evening, the Free Press erroneously reported the elder Benham was in fact the candidate.

"I expected this to happen," the former councillor said.

Tuxedo is currently held by Tory MLA Heather Stefanson.
