Summer grilling with Stephen
[PoliticsWatch updated 5:15 p.m. June 28, 2007]
OTTAWA — Prime Minister Stephen Harper appears to have the busiest schedule as he will travel around country and the world.
The Canadian Press reported on the weekend that Harper has four major events planned this summer: a mid-July trip to Colombia, Chile, Barbados and Haiti; his second trip to Canada's north to promote Arctic sovereignty; hosting the three amigos summit in Montebello, Quebec, where he'll meet with U.S. President
George W. Bush and Mexican President Felipe Calderon; and finally attending the APEC Summit in Sydney, Australia, in early September.
The prime minister is also expected to do some campaigning across the country over the summer months, including in Quebec where
by-elections are expected.
If Harper hits the barbecue circuit a Conservative insider tells PoliticsWatch the prime minister tends to go first for barbecue chicken. If that's not
on the grill, Harper will opt for a burger.
"He loves a good burger," the insider said.
