Now that’s tough.

I double-dare Stephen Harper, John Baird or any of the other big talkers in Parliament to walk the walk, like Governor-General Michaelle Jean did with the Inuit:

On the first day of her trip to the Arctic Michaëlle Jean gutted a freshly slaughtered seal, pulled out its raw heart, and ate it. Hundreds of Inuit at a community festival gathered around as the Governor General made a gesture of solidarity with the country’s beleaguered seal hunters.

Not only did she eat it, she was enthusiastic about it!

After repeated, vigorous cuts through the flesh the Queen’s representative turned to the woman beside her and asked enthusiastically: “Could I try the heart?”

Now that’s taking the phrase “A Governor-General of the people” to new heights of meaning…
