CALGARY -- The federal Liberal leadership race has another high-profile candidate.
Former MP Martha Hall Findlay, who also sought the party's top job in 2006, came forward Wednesday on the first official day of the leadership campaign.
"In 2006, there were some who questioned my run for leadership. But soon most were calling it gutsy. Before long, people were coming up to me all the time to say how much I inspired them," Hall Findlay said as she made her announcement in Calgary.
"We need to take on (NDP Leader) Thomas Mulcair right where it counts and where he's the weakest -- the economy. We need to take on (Prime Minister) Stephen Harper, take the fight to him, not just wait and react defensively to the next round of attack ads."
