Woah, stay Classy, LaPresse!
(Stephen Harper (to the left) asked the minister of foreign affairs, John Baird, to talk at the NU instead of going himself)
By Agnes Gruda
For people who don’t get the joke, this picture was taken during the first visit of Obama in Canada. As you can see, the face of Canada’s Prime Minister is sort of left… in the dark. Basically, Mrs. Gruda is highlighting how much Stephen Harper shows his lack of capacity at being seen as anything good compared to Barack Obama who stands out as a very charismatic politician who actually get things done. (or try).
In my opinion, Stephen Harper is an ordinary prime minister who can’t even step inside the UN and would rather spent 1.6 billion on glorifying the War of 1812 rather than take time to put his ministers in line (seeing that he let Roma Ambrose, the minister to the women’s condition, vote yea to the motion concerning the reopening of the debate on abortion despite the fact that Harper stated his party would vote nay to it) or even take action against climate change or the future energy crisis.
People who gave him the prize for the best Man of State were probably drunk.
Ordinary? You mean absolutely awful in every way! The man who won the Statesmen award just got named “The Worst Prime Minster” in all of Canada during a poll. He’s literally the George Bush of Canada at this point.
