That evil, uber-controlling Stephen Harp...

...wait a minute...
chessmaster jackIs there some special Dipper blackbag team that snatches up NDP candidates, takes them to secret locations... and pumps them full of party propaganda?
She was nowhere to be seen during the election campaign and newly elected MP Ruth Ellen Brosseau remained incommunicado Thursday as the NDP put her through intensive language training before she faces public scrutiny.

Ms. Brosseau never went to the Berthier-Maskinongé riding to meet voters during the campaign. She had no campaign workers, no campaign headquarters, no money. She simply placed her name on the ballot and won.
Wow... what's the odds on pulling that off, huh? That's gotta be a one in a mill... c'est what?!?
And she wasn’t the only NDP candidate to coast to victory with no campaigning.

Mylène Freeman, a 22-year-old McGill University political science student, was elected in Argenteuil-Papineau Mirabel, northwest of Montreal.

She also was never in the riding, because she didn’t expect to win, preferring instead to help the campaign of NDP Quebec lieutenant Tom Mulcair, who was running in Montreal.
Oh, Quebec... what have you done to yourselves?
