Harper roasting meat at barbecue
Stephen Harper has been called a lot of things in his life.
But never a "cannibal".
Especially not by his Environment Minister Peter Kent.
The link to eaters of human flesh happened a few days ago at a Conservative barbecue in Yellowknife.
Kent proudly introduced Harper as "the prime minister of Cannibal".
Oops, he corrected himself. He explained that he meant to say "Canada." A slip of the tongue. No more.
Earlier Conservative MP Ryan Leef had made the same mistake.
What is it with these Conservatives?
The prime minister a "cannibal" twice in the same week?
Some guests must have been wondering about those kebabs roasting on the barbecue.
Harper was ready. He cracked: "it confirms the rumors about me."
Political cartoonists are the ones who will be roasting Harper.
