Congratulations, Hélène Buzetti

Today, Hélène Buzetti was elected President of the Canadian Parliamentary Press Gallery. Félicitations. Richard ‘Badger’ Brennan did not run again, after two years marked by a difficult relationship with the Prime Minister’s Office (and some victories for the reporters – kind of).

The Press Gallery is much less useful than it used to be (from a PR point of view, that is). With the proper invitation, a flack could walk in to schmooze and booze with the members of the old boys’ club. Things have changed – they even closed the bar a couple of years ago, for lack of patrons. And of course, women have risen to the top of the profession, through skill, dedication and force of will.

Cheers! To a better Press Gallery.
