The former Senate page who was famously fired for interrupting a throne speech with a "Stop Harper" sign brought her signature protest move to the Alberta election today.
Brigette DePape held up a "Stop Harper's Gang" sign as Wildrose Leader Danielle Smith left a polling station with her husband David Moretta in High River, Alberta.

Smith, who seemed unfazed by the demonstration, quipped that her party must be doing well if the opposition was importing protesters from Ottawa. She also joked that she would be voting strategically.
DePape said she was there on her own to speak for young people, and that Wildrose policies are even more extreme than those of the Harper government.
DePape was dubbed the rogue page after she walked onto the Senate floor last June to protest against Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
Her silent protest took place during Gov. Gen. David Johnston's afternoon speech.
Senate pages are hired for one to two years to work in the upper chamber, providing basic support to the senators during sittings and in committee meetings, which generally means fetching water, photocopying documents and passing messages.
Pages tend to be politically engaged, but DePape's protest was unprecedented.
