Waving to drivers during morning rush hour outside her campaign office in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, Green Party leader Elizabeth May pulled out a special skill to try and win a voter over to her side.
"Hi, how are you?" a man said in Gaelic from his truck window.
"Good," she replied, also in Gaelic. "Vote Green Party!"
The man gave her a confused look.
"That's 'Vote Green Party' in Gaelic," she told him before he drove away.
Stay tuned for the spelling - courtesy of her brother, though: she can speak a little, but she can't spell that phrase.
