What They're Saying About Glen Murray for Ontario Liberal Leader

Sunday, December 2nd 2012 12:00:53pm

For immediate release

December 2, 2012

On my scorecard, Glen Murray wins.

More than any other candidate, he had a mastery and command of policy ideas at his fingertips. He spoke without notes, including his opening and closing statements, which also featured some French.

… he was utterly impressive in the way he mixed solid performance and policy.

Steve Paikin, Host of The Agenda, TVO, December 1, 2012

Glen Murray touted his past leadership abilities and the renewing city finances during his time as mayor of Winnipeg. If elected Liberal leader and subsequently premier, he promised tax breaks for the middle class.

[Glen Murray] gets it - Timmins Daily Press
Heck, even one southern-based Liberal MPP gets it. Glen Murray (Liberal -- Toronto Centre … said they should "pause" the divestment of the Ontario Northland Transportation Commission until regional priorities are set.
Timmins Daily Press, November 28, 2012

[Glen Murray’s idea for Northern Ontario regional government is] enough to earn Murray an enthusiastic love embrace from a region that always thought of itself as born to be wild.
Welland Tribune, November 22, 2012

His basic platform is something NOMA (Northern Ontario Municipal Association) has been asking for years.
Dave Canfield, Daily Miner & News, November 19, 2012

What does a former Winnipeg mayor-turned Toronto MPP know about Northwestern Ontario? Quite a lot, it seems … Murray appears to have done some homework on this file.
