NO Criticism Of MISSING Male Conservative MP - There Is A Sexist Double Standard When The MSM Attacks A Young Woman NDP MP From Quebec!

Power Play - CTV
At the 1:48 point of this Power Play excerpt, the panel talks about the double standard evident in the ongoing media frenzy over New Democrat MP Ruth Ellen Brosseau while no mention is made in the MSM of missing Conservative MP, Jim Hillyer. I guess the MSM - National Newswatch and Bourque Newswatch would all rather attack a young woman MP rather than a male MP.

"Jim Hillyer - Lethbridge's 'Man Who Wasn't There' Heads To Ottawa!
He was dubbed The Man Who Wasn’t There – Jim Hillyer, a first-time Conservative candidate in the southern Alberta city of Lethbridge.
Mr. Hillyer replaced a popular outgoing MP in the Tory stronghold, but set about a quiet absentee campaign that stirred an uproar in the tightly knit community, which is accustomed to meeting its candidates."
"He earned his moniker from a local newspaper after failing to show up at a pair of debates, repeatedly refusing interview requests and declining to speak to a local blogger who used Twitter to track him down while he was door knocking, an activity he said was more important. (In a video of the encounter posted online, Mr. Hillyer said he couldn’t talk because he had to use the bathroom.)
