Taking a selfie with Prime Minister Stephen Harper

Shortly after the 2011 Federal Election I ran into Prime Minister Stephen Harper who was visiting the office building where I worked. I asked him if I we could take a photo together, and he kindly agreed. I took a ”selfie” using my own BlackBerry, and his official photographer was quick to snap a photo of that exact moment.

The Prime Minster and I exchanged a few words and just before going our own ways his official photographer asked if she could take a photo of us standing side by side.

It was very nice of Prime Minister Stephen Harper to take the time to allow for such a photo, and it was equally nice of his official photographer to email me the photos afterwards. In conclusion, I found the Prime Minister to be both approachable and very kind. In other words, Stephen Harper is simply human.
