Harperman is written and performed by Ottawa folksinger Tony Turner. This video was recorded in a live session on 12 June 2015.
Tony Turner earlier won the songwriting contest held in March at the Ottawa 2015 Grassroots Festival. Tony then performed Harperman at the Mayday, May 1st, 2015 Gil's Hootenanny, Songs of Protest and Hope concert. This recording was made 6 weeks afterwards, in mid-June.
Chris Lloyd's thumbs-up shot with Stephen Harper has been making rounds on the Internet, ever since the Conservative party asked him to resign when they found out his candidacy for MP in the Papineau riding was part of an art project.
His bid for office was short-lived -- his Conservative candidacy ended before the 2015 federal election was even called -- but his art project has something to say about the strata that separate politicians and people in Canada.
He has been working on his project, Dear PM, since 1998 when he was a student at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design.
