"My wife has just called the fashion police having walked in just now and seen Jane Sterk's odd outfit." That's was 24 hours' columnist Bill Tieleman's reaction to Ms. Sterk's attire during the provincial leaders' debate. And, among the chattering classes, Mr. Tieleman wasn't alone in that reaction. But does the Green leader think her apparent wardrobe malfunction mattered? "Well, I don't really think it mattered," said Ms. Sterk on Public Eye Radio. "And maybe another time I would dress differently because it became an issue. I mean, for me, it was a statement that you don't have to dress like a man to be a leader of a political party in this province. And maybe you do. But, in the end, it's history."
