Vancouver Quadra Liberal candidate Joyce Murray is denying accusations lobbed by the NDP

The NDP accused Murray of benefiting from tax havens in a press release

VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) — A Liberal candidate running in a Vancouver riding is denying accusations being made by the NDP that she has benefited from businesses located in places known as tax havens.

In a release, the New Democrats link Vancouver Quadra candidate Joyce Murray to a company they say she co-founded around 50 years ago.

But, Murray’s campaign manager says she hasn’t owned shares since the year 2,000, with her husband owning the majority.

The NDP also points to a second company that was incorporated in Barbados about 15 years ago, but the Liberals say that was a subsidiary of the first one, and eventually closed down.

Murray’s team adds the parent company is still operating in the Caribbean and Central American region. The campaign stresses neither Murray nor her husband have benefited from where the companies are incorporated.

Editor’s Note: The party would like to make it clear that neither Murray nor her husband have benefited from the companies being incorporated¬†in the Caribbean and Central American regions.¬†
