Apparently there were several names on her nomination papers that were allegedly forged.
There is some grumbling in semi-rural Quebec about the new local MP — and not just because she lives 300 kilometres away, didn't visit the riding to campaign, can't speak much French and spent part of the election vacationing in Las Vegas. The latest grumbling is about Ruth Ellen Brosseau's nomination papers. Her opponents suggest they may have been falsified and say the riding results should be nullified if that is the case.This is one MP who should never, ever have been elected. How can she be trusted?
A man in the Berthier-Maskinonge riding says he was stunned to see his name and address listed on the papers filed by the NDP campaign, when he doesn't recall giving his support. The name of Rene Young's wife, Lise Leblanc, is there too, except her name is misspelled and the signature was clearly forged, he added. "Lise Leblanc is written there — but Leblanc without a C," Young said Wednesday in his living room in Trois-Rivieres, at the eastern end of the riding.
And to think that so many hard working men and women lost theirs.
A very sad time for Canada.
