Here's a new twist in controlling the media... Ban them from the washrooms. Well, the women, anyway.
My colleague Tanya Talaga snapped this photo today while covering Harper's trip to Mississauga. Here's what she sent along with the photo:
At a joint federal-provincial infrastructure announcement with Prime Minister Stephen Harper female journalists were not allowed to use the bathroom due to security reasons. There was only one bathroom on site at the Mississauaga maintenance yard and it was men's only. When Sun columnist Christina Blizzard tried to use it, she was removed by security.
