Please Note: This is not an endorsement of Stephen Harper [Canada’s current Prime Minister].
Did you watch the French federal election debate last Friday?
If you did, you must have been impressed by Harper’s extraordinary command of the language. Without having to grope for the right word, he recited facts and figures as though French was his first language.
Do you remember Mackenzie King’s French? Diefenbaker’s? Pearson’s?
What a contrast!
If linguistic talent was the only qualification for the highest office in the land, everybody should vote for him.
But it isn’t.
