OTTAWA - Françoise Patry, a potential candidate for the presidency of the Liberal Party of Canada, has decided not to enter the race.

"I am in the process of sending a mailing across the country right now and I will make it [that she's not running] official next week [this week]."

Now that Ms. Patry is out of the race, Akaash Maharaj, chair of the Liberal Party's National Standing Committee on Policy Development; Liberal MP Mac Harb; and Patrick Gagnon, an Ottawa consultant, are the remaining possible candidates who have talked publicly about running for the presidency of the federal Liberal Party.

Members of the Liberal Party will elect a new party president at the party convention in November of this year.
