Harper's First Press Conference

Very slick and cautious, but he answered a few things that show he'll be a good PM:

  • He won't recognize the recently elected Hamas gov't in Palestine because they support terrorism.
  • Despite grumblings from the U.S. Ambassador, he said that he'll proceed with beefing up our presence in the Canadian arctic because we have a right to our sovereignty.
  • And in dealing with the same-sex marriage issue, he said he wants to deal with it sooner than later. And of course, he knows that it will pass in a free vote, so he appeases democrats and social libertarians, and the socons will have to accept it. So there's a good thing about the minority gov't -- Harper doesn't have to worry about it sticking to him anymore.
