As far as I am concerned the new MP Ruth Ellen Brosseau, is just great and the Cons, Libs and media should fuck off.
Who cares if she didn’t campaign, or lives 300 km away or that her french is weak, the citizens of Berthier--Maskinongé voted for the NDP and it was her name on the ballot and it will not make any difference in Parliament either.
If I was Jack I would put all of the kids right up front. Put them in charge of the young dippers, send them all over the country. I’d stick them on the committees, because what difference does it make. We just went through five years with the so-called pros and nothing was resolved by the opposition committee members.
Besides, I can see them laughing at the antics of Baird and company. I know I would and think about the negative fall out when Baird tries his bully tactics on these young people.
Everyone laments about the lack of youth vote, well these young people can change all that. Hell if I was the Liberals I would try and rent them.
And if any of the residents of Berthier--Maskinongé are truly upset, I will gladly offer them a trade for the more experienced conservative MP Bob Dechert, that the foolish people in Mississauga, Erindale re-elected.
He speaks less French that my Ruth (I’m taking her under my wing here), but it really doesn’t matter because he refuses to answer your emails anyway. He has some national notoriety, being featured on a Mercer Report a couple of years back. He was the crying con shouting treason, about the Lib, NDP coalition.
So he really does not know that much about our parliamentary democracy, but who does on that side of the aisle and besides that knowledge no longer necessary.
At least for the next four years.
