Two protesters slipped past security and got within reach of Prime Minister Stephen Harper as he was about to begin a question-and-answer session on energy and economic issues at the Vancouver Board of Trade on Monday.
The protesters took to the small stage and stood behind Harper, with one holding a sign that read “Climate Justice Now.” A second protester held up a sign that said “The Conservatives take climate change seriously” with a line crossing out the phrase.
Security quietly removed both protesters without incident as Harper and board president Iain Black remained in their chairs on stage. Before they carried on with their agenda, Harper joked that “It wouldn’t be B.C.” without a protest.
They're just a couple of tree hugging granola eaters waiting for the bus to the EI office. Weirdos.
I will admit that he handled it quite well, as he is known for censoring the press so I assume that he isn't used to having his bubble intruded upon. So I applaud his ability to make a joke about it regardless of whether or not it was genuine.
There is also always the possibility that it was staged, as in an attempt to show the "human side" of Harper (if such a thing exists).
What makes one sure these guys were genuine?
Could they not be part of a public relations stunt by Harper?
Never trust tv guys. Assume none of it's real.
