Happy Birthday Stephen Harper!

The Prime Minister of Canada celebrates today 51 years (April 30, 2010). Stephen Harper is Prime Minister since January 23, 2006 and Conservative leader since March 2004. Harper is married to Laureen Teskey and father of two children: Benjamin (1996) and Rachel (1999). Harper is of humble origins and for several years it is his wife Laureen (a designer of websites) which supported the couple financially. Despite a lack of charisma, Stephen Harper is a formidable politician and he managed to win the Conservative leadership to Belinda Stronach, who was supported by her father Frank, the rich businessman (Magna). Moreover, none of the other Canadian political parties can dislodge him ¸neither in popular polls, or in the electoral vote and Michael Ignatieff cannot surpass the efforts of Stephane Dion before him. An excellent biography of Harper was written by William Johnson:
