Stephen Harper: Live and Uncensored!

CTV: Stephen Harper makes a surprise appearance at Ottawa’s National Arts Centre and sings Beatles hit ‘With a Little Help from My Friends.’

All I can say is wow!

Stephen Harper has always been criticized for not being overly charismatic or personable.  This is something I have tried to dispel.  I have met the man many times, heard him speak in person, and always been impressed with the prime minister’s personality, demeanour and overall presence.

The great thing about this preformance alongside Yo-Yo Ma is that it  just really helps to show that softer side of the PM that I have seen in the past and that so many across Canada probably haven’t been able to.

    A lot of Canadian men took piano lessons and are often reluctant to play for an audience. The posture of Stephen Harper walking onto stage says it all in that clip. Then he sits down on the piano bench and WOW. Well done Stephen Harper!
    Thankyou for taking time out of your busy family life to run our great country Canada.
