The NDP Party has gotten away with proverbial murder over the years with their nutty policies and asinine statements but not all in the MSM are prepared to give them a pass any longer.
Those in the Quebec media circles who are maybe unhappy that their Bloc buddies were swept out or are now embarrassed with the ghost candidates representing the province, aren’t playing around any longer.

“Anecdotally, there are many women who believe that the 27-year-old former pub server and single mother’s presence in the Commons is refreshing. Finally there will be more than [enough?] middle-aged blue-suited professionally-trained men in the House. With the addition of Ms. Brosseau, the Commons will take a small step toward reflecting real life”
