The first few days out, Stephen Harper tried something different. He took questions from the media.
But they had him in knots, so he's back to campaigning in a bubble with human props.
4 questions a day for those travelling with him (why bother?), 1 for the local media, salute and turn right. Rinse and repeat.
No wonder Canadians are starting to warm to Michael Ignatieff. He'll talk to anyone, even hecklers. How refreshing.
