Newly elected Quebec candidate Ruth Ellen Brosseau, who took a vacation in Las Vegas during the election campaign, is now being accused of having filed falsified nomination papers.

A resident in the Quebec riding of Berthier-Maskinongé said he and his wife were improperly listed on Ms. Brosseau's nomination paper.

Defeated Liberal candidate Francine Gaudet said other signatures on Ms. Brosseau’s nomination papers were from people who do not live in the riding – allegations the NDP denied on Wednesday.
