PM Stephen Harper joined GHW Bush, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Tiger Woods and Mike Weir on stage in Ile Bizard at the Royal Montreal to officially open the 2007 Presidents' Cup.
PMSH is very impressive in these types of venues. This week he wowed even Jim Travers with his performance in New York: "At the prestigious Council on Foreign Relations, Harper was at his impressive best. Showing parts of his political persona too rarely seen here, he was consistently thoughtful, impeccably briefed and appropriately amusing."
He did the same today, with the added bonus that Gary Player (who was battling apartheid when it wasn't cool) enthusiastically encouraged the Quebec audience to be "proud of their Prime Minister who last night delivered one of the greatest speeches on democracy I've ever heard".
Please imagine if Stephane Dion were doing this... Please do, I can't.
