PM Harper fetes media

June 25, 2011

Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Mrs. Laureen Harper held a garden party today on the lawns of 24 Sussex, Ottawa.

I was among the media personalities who converged on the official residence of the Prime Minister for an afternoon of meet and greet of media and members of their family, photo sessions, and Canadian style cooking by the students and instructors of Algonquin College under the guidance of the Executive Chef of the Prime Minister Tim Wasylko.

The residence provided the kids with entertainment by clowns, carousel ride and inflatable slides. The occasion was very informal with no speeches rather an opportunity for the media personalities drawn from all parts of Canada to mingle and socialize.
