Dougald Lamont has joined the race for leader of the Manitoba Liberal Party.

Lamont, a communications specialist and owner of Jetpack Media, handed in his papers on Wednesday ahead of the leadership convention on October 26.

“When I drive around Manitoba, I see so much potential. We have energy, we have water, we have land, we have people and we have room to grow,” Lamont said. “I want to run a government that is open, and puts more money into Manitobans pockets — so they can reach their full potential and build a future right here.”

The 44-year-old was born and raised in Winnipeg, where he currently resides with his wife and four children.

Winnipeg lawyer Rana Bokhari announced her intention in seeking the Liberal leadership on July 22.
