Statement from Frank McKenna

    TORONTO, Oct. 28 /CNW/ - Frank McKenna announced today that he will not
be a candidate for the leadership of the Liberal Party of Canada.
    "Although I have been deeply moved by expressions of support for me from
across the country, I have not been persuaded to change my long-standing
resolve to exit public life for good. My only regret is that I cannot honour
the expectations of friends and supporters who have shown enormous loyalty to
    The challenge of winning the leadership, restoring the health of the
Liberal Party and returning a Liberal majority government requires a longer
time commitment than I am prepared to make.
    There will be an ample number of well-qualified candidates to do this
important work."
    Mr. McKenna is not available for media interviews.
