It seems to be silly season in Canada today.
The country is going gaga over panda bears while anti-Conservatives are using it as an excuse to chide Stephen Harper.
On Monday morning, the PMO made a huge spectacle of the prime minister and his wife welcoming the delivery of two panda bears on loan to Canada from China in an apparent show of diplomacy.
Some took to Twitter to somehow connect 'panda day' with Harper not meeting with the premiers since 2009 — despite requests from the first ministers.
It's simply illogical.
Imagine, PM Harper won't meet with Premier's but will meet with 2 Pandas in TO, is there a lesson here? Should Premiers dress as Pandas?
