Harper's rejection rankles Mathyssen

Mathyssen, the NDP critic for the government's status of women program, was rebuffed as she tried to have Harper reverse a $5-million cut to the women's advocacy program that's closing 12 of its 16 offices across the country.

Mathyssen went to the front gate of the prime minister's residence at 24 Sussex Drive carrying a huge valentine at noon. She attempted to deliver her giant card, but was kept at bay by security staff.
