Liberal leadership hopeful Murray on way to Kamloops

Another Liberal Party of Canada leadership candidate is coming to Kamloops.

Joyce Murray will be in the city on Friday, Feb. 8, when she visits the Ploughman's Lunch, 152 Victoria St., at 5:30 p.m.

Murray's visit is being hosted by the The Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo Liberal electoral district association.

Murray is a former provincial cabinet minister and current MP for Vancouver-Quadra, having been elected in that riding three times. She and her husband have a tree-planting company that recently planted its one-billionth tree.

There are nine people vying to succeed Michael Ignatieff as leader of the federal Liberals.

Murray is challenging Martha Hall Findlay, Karen McCrimmon, Justin Trudeau, David Bertschi, Deborah Coyne, Marc Garneau, Martin Cauchon and George Takach.

All but Garneau, Cauchon and Takach have visited Kamloops during the leadership race.

The party will elect its new leader on April 14 in Ottawa.
