Acceptable usage of the term "Harper Government"

(Click to enlarge)

Media, bloggers, tweeters et al are free to call the government whatever they like. As above.

It's when the Government of Canada in official business refers to itself as the "Harper Government" that improper use of government resources is being made. The Government of Canada is for all of us and should refer to itself as such.

So we heartily approve of the above. Stephen Harper's full name should be affixed to that decision not to fund Toronto's gay pride parade this summer. Headlines like that come in handy at election time and stuff.
