Just a couple of guys going fishing

by Aaron Wherry

The Prime Minister’s Office apparently won’t say whether Stephen Harper and Rob Ford went fishing at Harrington Lake.

The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) and the mayor’s office wouldn’t take the bait when asked about the meeting. George Christopoulos, Ford’s press secretary, refused to comment. The PMO was equally tight-lipped. ”We do not comment on the prime minister’s private schedule,” Carl Vallée, Harper’s press secretary, said in an e-mail.

Philosophical question for the day: Could a meeting between two public officials at an official residence be considered private?

A little over a year ago, video was posted to YouTube of Stephen Harper speaking at a barbeque hosted by Rob Ford. That video disappeared, apparently at the behest of the Prime Minister’s Office. In that video, reposted below, Mr. Ford spoke of a previous fishing trip with Mr. Harper.

Just a couple of guys going fishing

  1. Could a meeting between two public officials at an official residence be considered private?
    Yes.

  2. You can either fish or cut debate…hey, wait a minute….. they’re trying to do both!

  3. Harper’s political antenna wasn’t tuned up that day – hatrick eh.

    Wonder if either one of them debarbed their hooks,or fished with illegal bait? Surprised Rob didn’t use dynamite?

  4. Nice to know harpo is hanging out with Ford, who is known to associate with known neo nazis.

  5. The PMO was also strangely silent on whether Justin Trudeau was spotted swimming by.

    • obvious media bias.
