The MLA for Burrows has announced her run for leader of the Manitoba Liberals.

 

Cindy Lamoureux made her announcement outside the Legislature this morning, pulling up to her press conference on a motorcycle.

 

 

At 25, Lamoureux says she recognizes she's young; she calls her age a wonderful asset that she's taking full advantage of.

The Lamoureux family is no stranger to politics. Her father Kevin Lamoureux is the MP for Winnipeg North and her uncle Darrin Lamoureux leads the Saskatchewan Liberals.

Rana Bokhari was the last leader to lead the provincial Liberals into an election. She resigned after an election that saw their party take just three seats in the Legislature. Lamoureux is so far the only one in the run to replace her.
