Candidate Joyce Murray doesn't think that will happen.
The MP from B.C. made those remarks after the party's national leadership showcase held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on Saturday.
"I don't think that Justin will win on a first ballot," she told Yahoo! Canada News.
"I don't think that I'll win on a first ballot either."
Murray, who many consider to hold second place in the race to replace interim leader Bob Rae is this contest's 'cooperation candidate.' The MP from B.C. is proposing one time cooperation — in 2015 — with the other progressive parties in a scheme to defeat the Stephen Harper Conservatives. According to reports, her campaign numbers have been buoyed by electoral co-operation organizations such as Leadnow.ca.
Interestingly, Trudeau spent a fair bit of his speech attacking the idea of cooperation.
