PM Harper’s Canada Day Message Asks God to Keep Our True North Strong and Free

HarperHappy Canada day from PM Harper and God. Yes, our prime minister likes to add the god stuff, which 65% of us think is just swell but quite a few of us (1 in 4) think it’s weird and foreign. I guess this PM doesn’t really care what non believers think because he did start of up the Office of Religious Freedom and it took a lot of insistence for atheists to be recognized.

How about instead of asking God to keep our true north strong and free, the PM used diplomacy to stop Russians from testing our northern boundaries; you know, do the things world leaders do. Because, it isn’t going to be God that will ensure our arctic sovereignty.
