I lIke Stephen Harper More and More

March 20th, 2006

From CBC:

French actress Brigitte Bardot won’t be getting a warm welcome from politicians when she travels to Canada this week to protest the seal hunt.

Both Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Fisheries Minister Loyola Hearn have refused to meet with Bardot on her visit to Ottawa Wednesday.

And why would they meet her? Unlike the last PM, who was willing to sell his soul to Bono for a front page picture in the Toronto Star, Stephen Harper see’s the futility in meeting people like this. The Canadian government is not about to change policy because of the demands of a washed up has been who hasn’t worked in 20 years, and hasn’t done 2 projects in the last 30 years.

And when she does show up, everybody knows what she is going to say. There really is no upside to a meeting with Mme. Bardot, just as there was no upside to meeting with Paul McCartney last month. So good on Stephen Harper for resisiting the temptation to shoot for an easy photo-op.

It’s nice to have a Prime Minister who seems to take his job seriously.
