MPs’ spouses reveal what it’s like being ‘the other half’ of an elected official

CPAC, text messages, FaceTime, and trips home: how spouses of MPs manage their lives and make their relationships work despite long distances and long hours.

P&I spoke to four MPs and their spouses about what it’s like when you haven’t seen your partner for more than a week—or sometimes longer—but can turn on CPAC and watch them in action. Clockwise, from left: Kelly Doherty and Conservative MP Todd Doherty; Howard Stiff and his wife, NDP MP Sheila Malcolmson; Christian Mongrain-Theriault and wife, NDP MP Christine Moore; and Stelios Doussis, with husband, Liberal MP Seamus O’Regan.Provided photos.
