Michelle Rempel Garner may be the MP for Calgary-Nose Hill, but for a brief moment in the House of Commons the other day, she represented millions of Canadians beyond her own riding.

Her seating assignment on the Conservative bench one row behind and just a bit to the right of fellow Albertan Garnett Genuis put her squarely in the shot for his painfully awkward riff on Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody during question period, and she didn't disappoint. In addition to practically rolling her eyes out of her head while he stumbled through his routine, she refused to stand up and clap along with the rest of her side when it was mercifully over.

Whether on purpose or by accident, she perfectly captured the way many Canadians probably feel about Pierre Poilievre's juvenile brand of politics — one we'll have to endure for a while yet.
