Did anyone else see the pictures of Stephen Harper, our prime-minister-designate, seeing his two young children off to school? He shook their hands.
Perhaps Harper is different when there aren't news crews in the vicinity. I certainly hope so; otherwise, if that's his level of parenting warmth, those kids are going to need a whole lot of therapy when they get older.
PS - I can't wait to see what my conservative parents think of the fact that Harper's wife goes by her maiden surname and not Harper. For years, my mom & dad (especially my dad) just reviled former tory prime minister Joe Clark for having a wife (Maureen McTeer) who dared keep her own name.
