An example of why I don't lose any sleep over Harper's many attempts to manipulate his image

Because he is a jerk. And once a jerk always a jerk. Take for instance his current trip to the sub-continent, which is really a tax payer funded play for the South Asian vote.
Controversy and chaos marked Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Golden Temple visit.

Harper refused to partake of prasad at Darshani Deodi after being dissuaded by his aide, Alisa Mohammed. He also declined langar.

SGPC officials said she also made them vacate their information office prior to the premier’s arrival. “When we objected, she said she had already spoken to the SGPC secretary on the matter. It is for the first time that we have suffered such humiliation at hands of a foreigner in our own office,” said a senior SGPC official, expressing resentment over the behaviour of the Canadian PM’s staff.
Kind of makes me think my comment over at BCL yesterday was a bit prescient.

And why are we paying for former MP Grewal Grumant to hang out with his wife over there?

And does refusing to partake of prasad and langar make Harper and the Cons anti-Punjabi?
Fair question since their flyer accuses the Iggy/Libs of being anti-semetic.
