Too late to change the plaque
Those Frenchmen got it wrong again.
arper Harper is the prime minister; Charest is the premier.
Le Devoir columnist Antoine Robitaille cranked up a good one last week, with a little help from his friends Andrée Boily and David D’Arrisso.
In Cannes they decided to honor a number of countries who participate in their annual film festival – Canada included.
Very nice of them.
So they put up a statue to Canada, and beside it a plaque to describe Canada.
The plaque read:
Governor-General : David JOHNSTON
Prime Minister : Jean CHAREST
Political regime: Constitutional monarchy
Sorry guys! Charest almost made to prime minister, but not quite.
And wait ‘til Harper finds out he got demoted somewhere below Charest.
Enjoy the photo and a tip of the hat to Robitaille.
