Canada is in the middle of a federal election (with no TFRs, proving to the U.S. that it can be done). This photo shows Stephen Harper, one of the four major party leaders, at my home airport in Ottawa, using the cockpit of his chartered jet as a campaign prop (not meant as an endorsement or an attack — I’m sure any of the other party leaders would do the same).
If you look very carefully at the middle of the top right quarter of the photo, you’ll see the best part — through the window, in the distance, is a poor line person, standing outside in sub-freezing temperatures, waiting to marshall the plane once the photo op is finally finished.
