The Quebec riding’s constituents of Ruth Ellen Brosseau finally heard from her today, 8 days after the election. Laughingly, this first contact was by auto-phone in halting French (see here).
The NDP did finally take an updated picture and posted it to her bio but the bad news is that she has been found to have embellished this same bio by claiming a diploma she doesn’t have.
“…has a diploma in Advertising and Integrated Marketing Communications from St. Lawrence College in Kingston.”
St. Lawrence College VP of student and external affairs:
“We can confirm that Ruth Ellen Brosseau is not a graduate of St. Lawrence College” (see here)
And the hits keep on coming as the Liberals have filed an official complaint over the validity of the signatures on her nomination form (see here).
Just imagine what it will be like when she finally surfaces and has to answer for herself in front of the microphones and cameras.
Update: The NDP have quickly put the blame on a “staffer” who inadvertently changed the wording”.
