Stephen Harper does his thing to boost Canadian productivity and reduce global warming?

The photo op took the train out of service for a day, because Mr. Harper insisted the locomotive should face west. “Normally all our locomotives are east-facing,” a GO staffer told me. GO took it over to the VIA yards to turn it around, and then turned it back around after the PM departed.

Uncle Dalton should have told Steve to take a hike on this one.

Either he is willing to contribute cash to GO transit or he isn`t.

Either the cause is a good one or it isn`t.

If Steve tied to money to the direction of the train then there is a lot more screwed-up here than GO transit.

Hey , by the way , why west.

Alberta's Hero! What a guy! This kind of tokenism should be good to keep them onside for the next election.

I'm thinking this should be symbolic of something, but I can't quite think what. In any case, what a lovely bit of pointless buffoonery. The overblown egos of some politicians is incredible at times.
