Please do not inadvertently inform Stephen Harper that professional cyclist Mikhail Ignatiev is currently racing in the Tour de France for Russia's Team Katusha, not for the Liberal Party of Canada.
Should he become aware of this, the Prime Minister may well then publicly denounce the Leader of the Opposition for being absent from Canada yet again – and then have to rapidly backpedal while the cyclist will just continue to pedal on around France as rapidly as he can.
