Long-awaited 'vice-president' position to be added to Harper cabinet

Stephen Harper is expected to announce an unprecedented change to the Canadian parliamentary system when he introduces a "vice-president" to his Conservative cabinet next week, sources say. 

It's a startling, if not entirely unexpected move by the Prime Minister, who has long expressed admiration for the American-style republican system and has found his executive vision for Canada repeatedly frustrated by parliamentary protocols and judiciary oversight.

"The time was right," said an unnamed source in the Prime Minister's office. "The Prime Minister has been enamoured for a long time with the policies and ideology that characterized the Bush presidency and with this addition to the cabinet, Parliament Hill will be the next best thing to the White House."
