Extreme Makeover - Taxpayer Edition
-Conservative campaign promise?
It's been confirmed that Canadian taxpayers are paying for Stephen Harper's fashion consultant who "helps him perfect his look, including managing his wardrobe and general grooming".
While I'm a tad concerned that our Prime Minister has not yet mastered his own "general grooming", I can wholeheartedly endorse this move. Anyone who has observed the many vests of Stephen Harper will agree that this is an expense well worth the as of yet undisclosed money it costs. The man represents Canada around the world and, given his fashion sense, this money has to potential to prevent countless international incidents.
On a personal note, while this will likely mean fewer "Stephen Harper looks goofy" blog posts, I feel this will be offset by the pottential for many "Stephen Harper's stylist" jokes.
