NDP leader Andrea Howarth loosens up on the campaign trail

HAMILTON - The campaign trail can be a hectic whirlwind, so Ontario's political leaders take their breaks where they can get them.

NDP leader Andrea Horwath loosened up a little at a street festival in Hamilton this weekend when she allowed a vendor to demonstrate a head massager on her blond crop.

After looking slightly nervous as the vendor took two whisk-like instruments to her head, Horwath visibly relaxed, saying the process felt great.

She even operated a massager herself at one point, calling the device "really neat."

When she was told the name of the stall selling the massagers was "Headgasm" she quipped "I saw that, and I get it, because I got goosebumps."
