How Chris Lloyd fooled the entire Conservative party

Chris Lloyd's thumbs-up shot with Harper has gone viral since the Conservatives found out his candidacy for MP was part of an art project.

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.

Since claiming a majority victory in 2011, the Harper government, with its Minister of Immigration Jason Kenney, and later Chris Alexander, has succeeded in quickly transforming Canada from a country known for its humanitarian tradition of welcoming outsiders and providing sanctuary to the oppressed into one that fears and distrusts refugees.
