Michaëlle Jean’s snowball fight

  1. The snowball fight is adorable!

  2. PR coup!

  3. ^Guess coups are all the rage in Ottawa these days.

  4. The NDP cake was stupid – just like their puppet show. When will they stop this nonsense and act grown up.

  5. lmao – love that last shot!

  6. How is the cake unfair?

    If the Liberals don’t like being associated with the Conservative government, maybe they should have stopped propping them up?

  7. Wow a cake! Were the puppets busy?

    Their stunts get lamer. They really sprung for a big cake there, that looks like the $3.99 Loblaws special. Wait! Was it made by union hands?

    Who is the guy holding the cake anyway?

  8. PS great pics of the GG, now that’s a PR coup.

  9. Doesn’t Baird look like he fits in with the class in that photo? Maybe big for his age and left behind a few grades, but an accepted member of the class, all the same.

  10. Kids in the class – adorable.
    snowball fight – fun.
    ndp – entirely unnecessary.

  11. the snowball fight was my grade class
    btw the class that was in the snowball fight is in my school
    i got a dumb teacher but i could of been in that pictues.
