Murray is a former provincial environment and government services minister and was elected as an MP in 2008 after first running two years earlier. Murray came in second place behind Justin Trudeau to be the new party leader in 2013 and was appointed president of the Treasury Board and Minister of Digital Government in early 2019.

Before entering politics, she worked with an international reforestation company that Murray says has planted roughly 1.5 billion trees — of which Murray planted more than 500,000 on her own.

Since electing Prime Minister John Turner in 1984, the riding has consistently sent a Liberal MP to Ottawa.
