In total there's to be three of these things, where Stephen Harper gets to wave and smile as "Joe the Plumber" tells him what a great job he's doing for working Canadians. According to the Star "critics" are saying it's the latest example of a "Tory penchant for leveraging public money for partisan gain." Now, there's a hilarious understatement. Joe Stalin could have taken pointers from these guys though without TV poor Uncle Joe was forced to erect statues to himself everywhere. Though he did have some pretty flashy white suits to demonstrate that he was a cut above everybody else. Perhaps a little fashion change is in order for our Prime Minister?
