Prime Minister Harper: “The Canucks are my team.”

Wondering: Are the dudes in Canucks jerseys in front part of his security team? I may not be Harper’s biggest fan, but that seems worrisome!

Below is the interview Harper gave to CBC’s George Stroumboulopoulos earlier this week.  Good stuff. And fun fact: he doesn’t PVR his hockey… he books the nation’s business around the NHL’s schedule, when necessary.

Now that’s hardcore. smile

Pretty cool that the leader of your country and just sit in the stands.  I am sure there are some security dudes around him, but could you imagine the space they would have to cordone off if the US Prez was there?

I’m guessing the Bruins fans in front of him are super-top-secret security.

That’s what I was thinking maybe, too. Like Super Top Secret In Disguise security. wink

Can’t fault you for that. But still, you know, I appreciate getting a little love from Ottawa. It seems kinda rare.  smile

Absolutely.

Think if another team from Canada makes the finals next year he will show up wearing their jersey?

No question about it.

Sat in the row in front of Bill Clinton in RFK in DC;  the men with the shades were there off to the side, but not much else. I doubt the Bruin fans even knew who he was, just be glad he wasn’t wearing a Canucks sweater knowing how dangerous the Gardens are.
