Stephen Harper refuses to answer questions about cape

OTTAWA (The News Desk) — Prime Minister Stephen Harper continued to frustrate political opponents when he refused to answer questions about his cape during question period on Parliament Hill.

“Canada must do its fair share in the fight against terror in Iraq, and that means supporting allied forces in a combat role,” Harper said in response to a question from opposition leader Thomas Mulcair about his cape.

MPs from opposing parties grew visibly agitated and began heckling the prime minister when he refused to acknowledge the fact that he was wearing a large black cape.

“How long is this cape? How much is it going to cost taxpayers? Has Mr. Harper always worn a cape?” asked Liberal leader Justin Trudeau. ”Where can I get a similar cape?”

“We stand with our allies in the region on the front lines against terror,” said Harper in response to Trudeau.

The prime minister continued to completely avoid the subject of his cape, even after it caught on a doorknob and caused him to crash into a group of reporters after question period. ♦
