Election of Rev. Andy Hogan. the first Roman Catholic priest to win a Commons gave the NDP three clergymen among the 16 MPs it will have in the next House. Father Hogan's victory in the Nova Scotia riding of Cape Breton-East Richmond allowed the NDP to widen its representation in religious terms with men of the cloth from three denominations among its ranks.
