Following the Alberta NDP's election victory one of their new MLAs Deborah Drever, 26, got into hot water for her social media activity namely giving the finger to the Canadian flag. She also drew heat for posing with a pro-marijuana t-shirt and drinking with her friends. I did not object to the latter activities, but the Canadian flag incident, well, raised a red flag:
Now it's entirely possible that Drever is a quick study and will become an excellent MLA. But in order for that happen she will need to exercise good judgment. None of us are perfect of course. But to dismiss the criticism as bullying leads me to believe that she probably won't learn from this experience. In which case, the people of Alberta are going to have a long four years with Rachel Notley and the NDP.
A week later it was revealed that she appeared on an album cover with a bottle aimed at a certain area of her anatomy.
