OTTAWA - Martha Hall Findlay won't promise to run for the Liberals in the next federal election if she loses her bid to become party leader.
The former Toronto MP would only say Wednesday that she'll see about running when the time comes.
"I might get hit by a truck sometime between now and then. We'll see," she told The Canadian Press.
In the wide-ranging interview, Hall Findlay said she'd be willing to entertain a wealth tax on the richest Canadians, although she wouldn't countenance any tax increase while the economy remains sluggish.
She also said she'd claw back more old age security benefits from relatively well-off seniors.
Hall Findlay also weighed in on the aboriginal protests that have rocked the country, urging police to do their jobs to break up illegal demonstrations and calling on Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence to end her month-long hunger protest.
Hall Findlay is one of six leadership contenders who currently have no seat in the House of Commons. Only three — Justin Trudeau, Marc Garneau and Joyce Murray — are sitting MPs.
