Is former Parliamentary page Brigette DePape a courageous hero or a spoiled brat?
Actually she can be both: It all depends on your point of view.
More specifically it depends on how you expect people to behave.
For instance, we all expect people to follow society's rules. It's part of what makes us human.
Hence, DePape is regarded by many Canadians as nothing but a self-aggrandizing, troublemaker because she disrupted the Throne Speech, clearly breaking the Parliamentary rules.
Yet there are those who are applauding DePape's bit of political theater.
Do these people not believe in rules?
Yes they do, but they would argue DePape was following a rule that transcends Parliamentary protocol, namely that we should stand up for what we believe.
In other words, we are all reading the same book, but sometimes we are on a different page.
