It's his apology and he'll pout if he wants to

From the Globe’s story today about internal preparations for last year’s National Day of Apology.

Mr. Harper’s staff let it be known that they wanted the apology to take place in a room in Parliament’s Centre Block down the hall from the House of Commons.

“Advised that PM will not likely want to sit through opposition leader speeches or five [national aboriginal] leaders and other speeches,” Ms. Wilson wrote after meeting with Mr. Harper’s office.
