According to Anonymous Senior Liberal Insider Strategists...

...former Winnipeg Mayor Glen Murray is strongly considering running for the Liberals in the upcoming St. Paul's by-election, to fill Michael Bryant's seat.

The Toronto Star, in addition to floating Murray's name, also touts Tim Murphy, Helen Burstyn, and a host of other candidates.

  • Glen Murray could only win in Toronto... lets just say he's none too popular in Winnipeg, which explains why he lost to Fletcher when he ran federally here

  • First Gerard Kennedy, now Glen Murray. I am not a hateful or accusatory person by nature, but we must turn out attention to this international conspiracy of Manitobans.

    If we allow the Manitobans to take over, they will make us all slaves of oil co... no wait, Manitoba doesn't have oil...

    Um... Potash, Manitobans only care about Potash... nope, that's Saskatchewan.

    Yes, Manitobans have a conspiracy to make the rest of the country as flat and non-descript as their frigid hellhole of a province. To avoid being turned into a meek canola farmer, I propose anti-Manitoba riots outside Queen's Park. Placards are to read "Tobies go home"; "My Canada is above sea level"; "Brandon, Manitoba... it could happen here". Battle of Batoche and Manitoba Schools act t-shirts available.

  • Dear CG
    Thank you for sharing this with the world. As a former Winnipegger myself, I have had the good fortune of having Glen as my mayor. When Glen left, I left too.
    It should be noted that Glen is the most popular mayor that city has ever seen. secondly, he used to live in Montreal, and has a great handle on issues that are relevant to the West and East. Meeting in the middle at Queen's Park would be awesome for Ontario.
    Now I just need to know where to sign up for the campaign

  • Queen's Park could use Glen's leadership and knowledge, both of issues and politics.

    I was proud to have him as my Mayor, and can tell you he is the most dynamic politician I have seen.

  • Anonymous, you are absolutely right!

    As a proud Ontarian, and former Manitoban - I encourage qualified candidates. Especially when I know they have the political smarts and the ability to shine during good and hard times.

    One might say Glen is "solid GOLD"

  • Glen is the kind of candidate the Liberal party needs. He's well connected, smart and is known around the Province for his work with municipalities. I hope the rumour is true. He can count on my support

  • He's be great! This guy is cabinet material.

  • Oh look, the Liberals are dropping in a white male to "represent" a safe seat populated with minorities.

  • Little doubt, the dude is completely just.
