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 will say only that she'll see about running when the time comes.

She jokes that she could be hit by a bus between now and the next election in 2015.

Hall Findlay made the comments in a 90-minute interview with The Canadian Press.

She also says she's willing to entertain a wealth tax on the richest Canadians, although she wouldn't consider raising taxes while the economy remains sluggish.

And she says she'd claw back more old age security benefits from relatively well-off seniors.
