Stephen Harper, Wednesday. ”I can’t address that subject. I don’t honestly know the answer. I’ve been reading and hearing different things,” he said.
Toronto Star, today. Prime Minister Stephen Harper, from overseas, was aware of and agreed with plans to leak stories that would distance him and the current party leadership from former prime minister Brian Mulroney, the Star has learned. A Conservative party source speaking on background said Harper was in contact with his chief of staff, Guy Giorno, and communications director Kory Teneycke, the officials behind the idea, while he was in Europe last week.
