Mul­roney’s daugh­ter seek­ing On­tario Tory nom­i­na­tion

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

TORONTO — For­mer prime min­is­ter Brian Mul­roney’s daugh­ter is seek­ing to run for the On­tario Pro­gres­sive Con­ser­va­tives in next year’s pro­vin­cial elec­tion, adding some po­ten­tial star power to a party look­ing to un­seat an un­pop­u­lar gov­ern­ment.

Caro­line Mul­roney, the vice-pres­i­dent of an in­vest­ment firm, an­nounced on so­cial me­dia Wed­nes­day that she will seek the nom­i­na­tion in York-Sim­coe, north of the Toronto area.

The rid­ing has been held since 1995 by Pro­gres­sive Con­ser­va­tive Ju­lia Munro, who is retiring. Munro tweeted Wed­nes­day that Mul­roney has her full sup­port.

Party leader Pa­trick Brown wrote on Twit­ter that he is “thrilled to see such ex­cep­tional in­di­vid­u­als like (Mul­roney) step up to seek a nom­i­na­tion” for the party.

Mul­roney is the vice-pres­i­dent of Toron­to­based Bloomberg-Sen In­vest­ment Part­ners. For­merly, she worked at a ven­ture debt fund, as a lawyer in New York City, as the as­so­ci­ate direc­tor of the New York Univer­sity Cen­ter for Law and Business, and an an­a­lyst in in­vest­ment bank­ing at Bear Stearns & Co. Inc.

She also co-founded the Shoe­box Project for Shel­ters, which col­lects and dis­trib­utes gifts to women who are home­less or at risk, and is on the board of di­rec­tors of the Hos­pi­tal for Sick­Kids Foun­da­tion and the Fraser In­sti­tute.
