Well I’ll be.
Wasn't that our media-shy Prime Minister Stephen Harper I saw last week kissing up to the national press with at least a dozen of his smiling cronies in tow?
Yep. It sure was.
And wasn’t the same Stephen Harper I saw handing out 3 billion dollars or so to Ontario for roads, bridges and public transit?
Yep. That was him too.
As if Harper’s making nice with the press wasn’t a sure sign in itself – since he was elected two-and-a-half years ago, Harper’s always made it seem like he was more willing to wrestle alligators then talk to reporters – you know what it means when the powers-that-be start handing out big bucks for roads.
It means an election’s coming.
And it looks like the beginning of the next election campaign got its unofficial start last week.
