The Harper appeal

Joe O’Connor tags along with the Prime Minister.

Archie Brown did something the other day he had never done: He donated $200 to a political party — to the Conservative party … blue-collar guy with a name tag on his blue work shirt, a first-time Conservative party donor and a voter in Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff’s west-end Toronto stronghold, stood beside a printing gizmo finishing his coffee. His mind was made up.

“What I heard from the Prime Minister today was good news,” he said. “I got to shake his hand. It’s funny. His hand was smaller than I thought it would be. It was the same size as mine.”
