You would think that Canadian head of government, Stephen Harper, would have more important issues to attend to but apparently not. Unless... Maybe this some kind of Canadian propaganda? That's gotta be it. Never trust a kitten!

"Canadian Propaganda"? Actually your dead on (sorta). It's a publicity stunt by Harper, who has always had very low reputation and ratings in Canada, and his kitten gets higher number than him, which A) isn't hard since Harper has never gotten an approval rating much higher than 45% at the best of times and B) it's a freaking KITTEN! Who doesn't like those, regardless of it's owner? His attempts to use his Kitten for political support have even been lambasted by SuperheroGirl. ( [superherogirladventures.blogspot.com] )

But I bet some of you are asking "How'd he get to be Prime Minister if he isn't that well liked?" Well, it's because we have 4 parties in Canada, one of which was border-line racist and had iron grip over their region, until all the young people in that region decided to start voting in the last election and realized that everything the party was advocating was pretty racist and lies to boot, so they lost in just about every region, some of which went to Harper, and the previous leading party lost just about all of it's seats when they couldn't find a leader who was A) selfless B) competent & C) charismatic. The remaining party was able to snap up a lot of seats in the last election thanks to the down fall of the other two, but was not a firmly establish as Harper's party was going into the election and weren't quite able to build up enough to get control, despite having better approval ratings than Harper, so they're now the official opposition.
