"You know, I'm from a household where before I got back into politics, both my wife and I were running small businesses. I was running, I suppose better to say a medium-sized business, and she was running a small business, and we're aware of these difficulties." (Stephen Harper, CTV NewsNet, September 15, 2008)Just curious about this. Running a business could mean he was a manager, an employee of a business owner. Or did he own it, as was clearly the shading that was intended in his remarks and with the event today. To claim that he's "aware of these difficulties" when his actual experience in business is likely nil is disingenuous.
I'd just like to know. This is the first I've heard of Stephen Harper the small/medium sized business owner.
