I think Harper sounds trendy and I dislike the potential of Harp or Harpy as a nn...
Its all the prime minister here in canada so I would assume your conservative and dislike it even more because of that.
I know absolutely nothing about the prime minister. So that is not an issue for us.
about the conservative part... Well I guess Im reading far to into your statement...
Well, Harper is the head of the Conservative Party. He is also the PM that was elected to a majority government with just under 40% of the popular vote (we have 5 parties represented in the House of Commons currently, so things can get complicated here regarding vote percentages and seats) after being found in contempt of parliament for the first time in the history of the Commonwealth. He and his party aren't very popular with moderate & left wing Canadians, or even a lot of small-c conservatives, which is probably where that comment came from.
As another Canadian, I couldn't do it. It's trendy and all I can think of is the photo of him holding a kitten. I would PIP, but I keep failing at it. It should suffice to say it is not the image I would want associated with my daughter.
