Eve Adams, the former Conservative MP who crossed the floor to join the Liberals on Monday, will run for the Liberal nomination in the Toronto riding of Eglinton-Lawrence.
Adams made the announcement while talking to an leading TV channel nothing that it was time to win back the traditional Liberal stronghold from the Conservatives.
“It’s critical to reach out and take back riding after riding that has gone Conservative and bring them back into the red fold,” she said. If the newly-minted Liberal wins the nomination, she will be taking on Finance Minister Joe Oliver in the next federal election. Oliver won the riding in 2011, marking the first time the riding had voted non-Liberal since 1979. Adams, who is the current MP for the riding of Mississauga-Brampton South, said she has strong connections with the Eglinton-Lawrence area and is planning to move to the neighbourhood.
If successful in her nomination bid, Adams said one of the main issues she’ll be bringing up to constituents is the Conservative income splitting policy.
