Sen. Zimmer's wife's acting debut
Maygan Sensenberger likely didn't expect her first 15 minutes of fame would come as the result of an outburst on an Air Canada flight between Ottawa and Saskatoon.
She pleaded guilty earlier this fall to causing a disturbance on an airplane after the incident, which made international headlines because she is 23, and her husband is 69-year-old Manitoba Liberal Senator Rod Zimmer.
Sensenberger and Zimmer both however seemed to hope perhaps the attention would help launch Sensenberger's acting and modeling career.
Her first short film, First Ladies, is now available on the web. It was part of the Digi60 Filmakers Festival recently in Ottawa. I'm not sure what the rating is but I'm pretty sure you should not let your children watch it with you.

About Mia Rabson
Mia Rabson is a born and bred Winnipegger whose interest in politics seemed clear when she dressed up as Prime Minister Brian Mulroney for Halloween in the 7th grade.
Her interest in writing was no surprise to her parents, who learned early in Mia’s life that no piece of blank paper — or wall, for that matter — was safe in her hands.
She holds an honours BA in English from Queen’s University, a master’s degree in journalism from the University of Western Ontario, and has completed a political journalism fellowship in Washington, D.C. with the Washington Centre for Politics and Journalism.
Prior to working for the Winnipeg Free Press, Mia briefly worked for the Detroit News in the paper’s Washington bureau.
Mia joined the Free Press team in February 2001, and in April 2001 was appointed to the Manitoba legislature bureau. In December 2004, she was appointed bureau chief at the legislature. She became the newspaper’s parliamentary bureau chief/national reporter in Ottawa in January 2008.
In 2008 she was nominated for a Michener Award with a team of reporters from the Free Press for its coverage of the province’s child welfare system.
She counts reliving the invasion at Dieppe, France, with veterans of the failed Second World War expedition and overcoming her fear of heights to touch the Golden Boy statue atop the Legislative Building among her favourite experiences as a reporter.
