The world is passing him by

So Stephen Harper stopped in to Toronto on Sunday. Gotta wonder why he would do this on the day of the huge gay pride parade. Isn't the question of why he's not attending a story that comes out of his visit? And if so, how is that good for him right now? Isn't he trying to appeal to "centrist" Canadians who might be OK with gay marriage and gay issues? I'm not saying he should have attended, as he likely would have been poorly received, but just maybe he shouldn't have shown up in Toronto and made a point of how he would not be attending. Any events elsewhere in Canada today that he could have attended? I'm afraid he has a political tin ear, this one.
