Montreal Simon: What Would You Tell Stephen Harper If He Tried to Shake Your Hand?

It's a horrible thought, and it could only happen in a nightmare.But what if you were wandering through a deathly dreamscape, and suddenly there was Stephen Harper, offering to shake your hand?What WOULD you say to him?And while that could never happen to me, because I'd rather cut off my hand than shake his, . . . → Read More: Montreal Simon: What Would You Tell Stephen Harper If He Tried to Shake Your Hand?
