The skinny on the spouses:
- Hong Kong. Olivia Chow, wife of Jack Layton.
- Hungary. Zsuzsanna Zsohar, wife of Michael Ignatieff.
- Montreal, Quebec. Yolande Brunelle, wife of Gilles Duceppe.
- Turner Valley, Alberta. Laureen Harper, wife of Stephen Harper.
- unmarried. Elizabeth May.
Interesting to note: two of the five, Layton and Ignatieff, have been divorced. And also interesting that of the four married males, only one (Harper) has a wife who took her husband's surname.
Moving on then: what religion are they, and how religious are they?
- Allegedly, a lapsed Catholic, now atheist.
- Anglican, and studying to be a minister.
- Belongs to the Evangelical 'Christian and Missionary Alliance', and attends regularly.
- Russian Orthodox, though in own words not a 'church guy'.
- United Church of Canada; "I don't practice as frequently as I should".
