Murray was first elected as an MP back in 2008.
She came in second behind Justin Trudeau to be the new party leader in 2013.
Vancouver Quadra has been a Liberal stronghold for a long time.
It’s been solid Liberal turf since the election of former Prime Minister John Turner back in 1984.
It’s the sixth wealthiest riding in all of Canada, and people living in the riding are among the most highly educated in the country.
Murray had been challenged by lawyer Blair Lockhart, running for the Harper Conservatives.
Lockhart specializes in corporate and mining law, and she teaches environmental law at Capliano University and UBC.
On October 2nd, Murray had this published in the Georgia Strait:
“You have a clear choice in this election: invest in growing the economy and in people—the Liberal plan. Or austerity and cuts—the Conservative/NDP approach. The Liberals have a capable leader with a positive message, a plan for real change and a strong team to deliver on it. Help us to fire Stephen Harper and elect a better government. As Nelson Mandela said “It only seems impossible—until it’s done!” Together we can make a difference and build a more progressive, prosperous Canada.”
