Harpermania

In the days leading up to the Federal Election, Prime Minister Stephen Harper made a last minute campaign stop in Waterloo at Sports Systems Unlimited.  After drilling in some screws into hockey boards for a photo op, he addressed his supporters. 
And then the media was whisked away in vans to a second location, an apple farm a 10 minute drive away, for yet another photo op.
It was an interesting experience to be a part of and see how it all goes down.  And also cool to be shooting with all the wire photographers.
