We all hear about what a "bully" PM Harper is, the media makes sure to paint him that way. Here is a very good article about Laureen Harper and her run for breast cancer. Wonder if we will see anything about this the media tomorrow?
Pitching a tent with Mrs. Harper
'Team 24' Members
OTTAWA -Gaining access to the inner sanctum of the Prime Minister's residence takes persistence, impeccable connections, or, in my case, extreme klutziness in the pursuit of a noble goal.
That is how I ended up in the family kitchen of 24 Sussex this week after running into a pole during a training walk for a charitable fundraiser with Laureen Harper, who kindly rushed me inside to tend to my (self-inflicted) wounds.
....This morning, Mrs. Harper and the other 12 of us on Team 24 (named after the Prime Ministerial residence) will join more than a thousand people on a two-day, 60-kilo-metre walk around Ottawa for the Weekend to End Breast Cancer Walk. The Prime Minister's wife will camp overnight in a large field along with hundreds of others, make do with the portable washrooms along the route, swap stories and conversations to pass the time, and endure blisters and sore feet for a good cause.
Read the whole article, it gives a nice prospective on Laureen Harper and just how ordinary the Harper family really is, a Tim Horton's family. If the Conservatives want to get the female and family vote, they should show more of the Harper family. Ben going to hockey, Laureen on her bike, their cats, Rachel playing with school buddies, and the family together at some non-official functions. The media wouldn't like that though. They have worked too hard to demonize the Prime Minister, and it just wouldn't do to have a lighter side of the PM shown to us average Canadians. So don't expect to see any coverage of this race tomorrow that shows Lauren or 24 Sussex with the PM waving in support.
The MSM doesn't want to show the "human" side of the PM, they ignore anything that makes him look good to voters. Such petty little people.
