MP MURRAY PROPOSES TO BOLSTER CANADA'S INNOVATION CAPACITY
KINGSTON - Member of Parliament and Liberal leadership candidate Joyce Murray today unveiled a new economic sustainability proposal from her Sustainable Society platform on world class research that would reinvest in Canada's basic research capabilities.
"Canada's research investment is critical to our ability to compete in the global marketplace of ideas and build a sustainable, value-added economy," said MP Murray. "World class research generates innovation, creativity, productivity, and prosperity. We have the talent, but world class research requires vision, courageous arm's-length decision-making, the right balance between applied research and basic research, and stable funding."
MP Murray's plan includes:
• encourage our publicly funded scientists to leverage open access approaches to their work;
• enhance much-needed innovation transfer channels between scientists and the private sector, as well as the general public;

MP MURRAY: ELECTORAL COOPERATION IN LABRADOR BY-ELECTION WILL ENSURE PROGRESSIVE WIN AND HARPER FAIL
MONTREAL - Member of Parliament and Liberal leadership candidate Joyce Murray expressed her pleasure at the agreement of the Green Party of Canada to help ensure the election of a progressive candidate in the by-election expected to be called for the riding of Labrador shortly.
"When news broke that a by-election was imminent following the resignation of Peter Penashue, the Harper Conservative MP forced to resign last week due to an election financing scandal, and in light of the 2011 results in Labrador and Stephen Harper’s attempt to stack the deck in Penashue’s favour, I called Green Party Leader Elizabeth May and asked her to consider having the Green Party EDA not run a candidate when the by-election is called. She immediately agreed to discuss the unique circumstances of this riding with the Green Party’s Executive Council and today we see the result: the Green Party has announced that it will not run a candidate in the Labrador by-election," said MP Murray. "I am solidly on the record supporting local level electoral cooperation to elect progressives and defeat the Harper Conservatives. In this instance it is abundantly clear that the progressive candidate with the greatest ability to do that would be the Liberal candidate and not the Green Party candidate.”
