Harper Stands Up to the Americans

Ottawa - Reading from a prepared script with US secret service agents flanking him, Prime Minister Steven Harper announced "The fact that the Canadian election is set for the same time frame as the US election this year is purely coincidental. It is not taking place as directed by our American warlord cousins as reported."

Canadian political parties will have a chance to debate the issues with the Prime Minister live on television prior to the election with the exception of the Green Party which has too few members to qualify as an official party.

Green party members are challenging the ruling and calling for a debate on the debate.

This debate on the debate has led to widespread water cooler discussion and fighting in the streets by ex-patriot British footie hooligans looking for a reason.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police have been called in to quell the riots and give training to the yobs on how to play pat-a-cake instead.

Harper says "Debate on the debate on the debate has engaged Canadians of all stripes into the political process demonstrating that the true spirit of democracy is alive and well in this country."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
