Don't Tell Me That Politics In Canada Is NOT An 'Old Boys Club'!
Never mind that a male conservative candidate from Alberta, Jim Hillyer, was absent and hiding out during the campaign. Not a word of criticism was heard about the 'guy' but the misogynist attacks on Mme. Brosseau have been deafening.
Canada's most prominent news agencies and aggregators, have carried stories concerning Ruth, non stop for days now. But don't look to find much mention about Mr. Hillyer's absence.
If I didn't know better, I would have to say that there exists in Canada, a double standard in our political process. If you happen to be young and female, God help you. The 'angry old white guy' crowd simply will not tolerate a bright young woman venturing into the old boys club that is Parliament in Canada.
