Former mayoral candidate Melanie Joly to represent Liberals – Montreal

MONTREAL – A high-profile former Montreal mayoral candidate and friend of Justin Trudeau has won the Liberal nomination in the Montreal-area riding of Ahuntsic-Cartierville.

Melanie Joly, who finished second in Montreal’s 2013 vote for mayor, received the nod in a vote held Sunday.

She was criticized earlier this month after it was discovered she had given a $250 donation to a Conservative Party candidate in 2011.

Joly said she made the donation because the candidate was a member of her business circle and maintained she “never had any ties” with the Conservatives.

In June, some of her rivals speculated the party was delaying the nomination date to allow Joly to sign up more members.

Joly will now have to take on Maria Mourani, the former Bloc Québécois MP who is now running for the NDP.

Mourani has represented the riding since 2006.

The Liberals have now nominated candidates in 74 of Quebec’s 78 ridings.
