I can't believe what an egotistical idiot this man is!! Perhaps we should call him supreme leader as well!

Sorry...blame me. I've been calling it The Government of Steve for quite some time now. I guess he heard about it.

Out of curiosity, and im just making a guess, but couldnt it be taken the same as we do here in the US? Seems to me to be no different than the Bush Administration, or the Clinton administration.

Reminds me of the old days from Britain, with the Thatcher Government.

Yes I do realize that they do call it that...however, he is calling it the Harper Government, which to me seems no different than the United States of Clinton...or Clinton's United States.

Respectfully you need to look into your History. There are a bunch of Prime Ministers who had their government refered to by their name IE Harper Government, Martin, Chrétien etc.

I think you might be reading too much into it.

I don't mind if they call themselves that...hell I call myself Superman2012 (not my real name), but when employees get in trouble for not calling it that..and they change letterhead so that it says that...that is my problem.

And lest anyone forgets, a directive went out to public servants late last year that "Government of Canada" in federal communications should be replaced by the words "Harper Government."

I don't know if you are pulling people's legs or not. Are you actually from Canada? Do you have any idea how your country works?

In Westminster Parliamentary systems like Canada, the UK, and Australia, the Prime Minister traditionally gives his name to the Government, in the same way that the U.S. President gives his name to the administration.

Thus in Australia, "the Menzies Government", "the Hawke Government", the "Keating Government", and the current "Gillard Government". In the UK "the Churchill Government", "the Blair Government", etc. In the U.S. its "the Nixon Administration", "the G. W. Bush Administration", "the Obama Administration", etc.

There is nothing nefarious or egotistical about it, its just traditional shorthand.

Frankly, I know nothing about Harper or his policies. If you don't like him, you would make better progress by attacking his policies, not some imagined bulldust non-issue.

1) Read comment above.

2) It is obviously an issue with me when I started a thread about it!

3) I never said it was nefarious...or the NWO is behind it. I think it is egotistical and I don't care for it.

4) Born and raised in Canada.

5)Canada is not Australia. ( source if you can prove otherwise please)

6) Nothing shorthand about it...both Harper and Canada have 7 letters.
