The Tories were rocking around the Christmas tree tonight at their annual party. Even the Prime Minister got into the spirit by performing five of his favorite rock tunes.
The humanizing of Harper is nice to see, it reminds Canadians that he has regular routes like most of us. To hear audio from the concert [ click here]

After a day fending off opposition barbs in the House of Commons, Prime Minister Stephen Harper ditched his tie and played a little rock ’n’ roll in front of cheering MPs and political staff at the Conservative party’s annual Christmas party.
Harper led a four-piece band called Herringbone to sing and play four songs.
With Harper at an electric piano, the band led off with a cover of Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline” and then followed that up with a cover of Scottish band The Proclaimers’ “I’m On My Way.”
Harper dedicated that one to Scotsman and senator, Doug Finley, the mastermind of Harper’s winning election campaigns who is recovering from surgery.
