Prime Minister of Canada
Stephen Harper

Remy Steinegger / World Economic Forum

Looking for: Very, very serious and intense relationship. Must like to cuddle.

Name: Stephen Harper

Age: 50

Location: Ottawa, Canada

Occupation: Prime Minister of Canada

Ever married? No…I’ve just never met the right girl! Maybe my standards are too high, but I say, if only one special lady is going to be my first, I want to make sure it’s the right special lady!

Likes: First, my mom. Well, that’s not true, I don’t like my mom…I love her! But in all seriousness, my mom is a really important part of my life. Also, my cat “Scratches”, who is quite a handful (no pun intended!), but I love her anyhow. And I like herbal tea, but no caffeine, because it makes me jittery.

Dislikes: Quebecois separatists.

Something that most people don’t know about me is: Canada (rhymes with “banana”) is a country north of the U.S. that was originally established as an American penal colony in the 1940s, but was granted its independence in 1974 when Washington determined that repelling wave after wave of polar bear attacks had grown too expensive. I became Prime Minister when I lost a bet with the previous Prime Minister.
