PERRY MEETS PRIME MINISTER STEPHEN HARPER DURING SIDEKICK TOUR!
Not a word of a lie, as Dave and I were getting into the elevator at the Delta Winnipeg on Tuesday, who did we see standing inside?
None other than the Right Honourable Stephen Joseph Harper.
Apparently he was in the Peg to speak to the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce the next day.
How appropriate then that I took the opportunity to tell him about our little independent venture.
That’s right, as we descended to the third floor spa facilities, I pitched the Prime Minister of Canada on SIDEKICK.
He and his aides were very friendly and attentive as I spewed out all the details.
So now that he’s aware of the film, our next step is to get him to see it!
