Everyone respects and likes the NDP's Megan Leslie, even people who don't share her political views. It's because she's young, bright and she's representing us in Ottawa with a lot of character. In case you think we're biased, consider that in May of 2009 Leslie was voted Rookie MP of the Year in *MacLean's* magazine third-annual Parliamentarian of the Year Awards, an honour voted on by her peers, other members of parliament.
Silver: Geoff Regan
Bronze: Peter Stoffer
