I don’t want to wear out this gimmick, but when I’m trolling through all the communiques prairie dog receives from the PMO, there’s just so many great photos that I hate not to share them with you. As I’ve noted before, they also offer a fascinating insight into modern-day politics, and how Stephen Harper’s handlers want to portray him to the country.

This photo was taken after Canada’s head honcho¬†and his wife Laureen left the Commonwealth Summit in Perth and jetted up to the G-20 Summit in Cannes. It’s the twelfth instalment in the PMO Photo Op Caption Contest, it’s from a “working session” at the G-20, and it’s probably the one that makes me the saddest.
