R23, he didn't grow up religious. He was converted in his 30s by Preston Manning, so what your friends says doesn't contradict that.

For those who haven't seen it already, there's a new biography titled "Harperland" (by Lawrence Martin) that's worth a look for anyone concerned about Canada's future political trends.%0D %0D The book doesn't go into much detail regarding Harper's religious beliefs (whether real or for show), but it should make even staunch conservatives worry about the centralization of power that's occurred since his election.%0D %0D The guy who campaigned on a platform of transparency and accountability, starting from day one, has created the least transparent and least accountable government in Canada's history. And that's with a minority! His lust for power and contempt for democracy should worry all Canadians, regardless of their take on his religion.%0D %0D The link below is to Amazon's description of the book. At the moment, it says it ships in one to two months -- strange, for a political best seller. For e-readers, though, the book is also available from kobobooks.%0D

Wow, Canadians are really delusional. If you want religion mixed with politics, come to the US and have your fill. Stephen Harper & Co. are nothing compared to it.
In fact, as a gay Canadian now living in the US, I've never "feared" Harper nor the Conservatives taking my rights away. In fact, was it ever even discussed outside of the initial failed voted to reopen the marriage debate?

It's common knowledge around Parliament Hill and in the public service that Laureen and Steve have secretly split up and she's living with a female RCMP officer. They've kept it quiet for the election and she's doing photo ops with him to help his campaign. Harper is a "family values" hypocrite.

A friend who has a lot of journalist friends told me that during the latest election, Stephen and Laureen were at a photo op, and the photographers urged them to kiss for the cameras. The Harpers looked horrified, and would not do it.

You could have just let this thread die, but no. You posted and revived it.
I've been hearing the lesbian rumours for years. My partner's sister and brother in law are tight with several prominent Alberta conservatives, provincially and federally, and while they won't go so far as to say Laureen is a lesbian, they won't deny it. They do confirm that the Harper's marriage is a sham and that they live separately.
Once Harper is out of the PM's seat and returns to private life the couple will quietly split up.

I live in Ottawa and have a close friend connected to Parliament. Everyone knows Mrs Harper is a lesbian whose longtime girlfriend is in the RCMP. This isn't America. We Canadians tend to look the other way when it comes to people's private affairs. But we do gossip.
There have ever been any stories about Stephen Harper, though. He is as asexual as they come. Brian Mulroney is supposedly gay. He would request only the most goodlooking boys from Parliament's catering corp to work on his retreat in Meech Lake. No apparent hanky panky though - he loved having them wait on him while he spent all day in bed. Another friend was one of those boys. Said Brian was always a gentleman but had effeminate tendencies when his guard was down. Also said Ben the son treated the help like they were beneath him and is insufferably snobbish.

I worked for CTV's Ottawa Bureau from 2007 to 2013 and I started hearing the rumour about Laureen Harper around 2009(ish). I first started hearing that rumour from people close to members of the Conservative Party's infamous gay mafia [Conservative Party Gay Mafia - made of up of a number of Conservative MPs and conservative staff e.g. John Baird, James Moore, Nigel Wright]. My guess is that there is some validity to the rumour.
The truth of matter is, the Harper marriage is a political one. They first met in 1990 at a Reform Party event and then, out of the blue according to some, became engaged and married in 1993 when Stephen was first running for election an an MP. Laureen was divorced prior to meeting Harper. I do know for a fact, Stephen Harper rarely stays at 24 Sussex Drive (the PM's official home) with his wife and children, preferring to stay at a condo he purchased while he was leader of the opposition.
[R92] Why no pictures or anything from the media? There's an unwritten rule in the Canadian media that reporters do not publicly report on the private lives of politicians and more importantly not on their family. There's a believe that their spouses and children are not public figures and shouldn't be reported on.
[R91] I've heard similar things about Brian Mulroney's liking of surrounding himself with young (as in barely legal) good looking men. As for his son Ben Mulroney, besides being a total asshole, there are many rumours that he is very, very, deeply closeted aka self-hating queer who can't accept it.

r93, I agree that by and large families of politicians should not be in the spotlight, but many times the media has abrogated its responsibility to the public.
The private situations of Ralph Klein and Maxime Bernier were matters of public interest that absolutely should have been reported.

With this being an election year, expect Laureen Harper to be taking on a much more visual role than in the past. Harper has an image problem as being seen as a bully (which he is .. ruthless really) so Laureen's role will be to help Harper look more human.

[R98] That would be Ray Novak who is Stephen Harper's Chief of Staff (who used to live above the Harper's garage). Ray Novak replaced Harper's former Chief of Staff Nigel Wright. I don't know much about Novak but the gossip is he is a 'confirmed bachelor' but he's in his late 30s so not sure if he's old enough for that title yet.
Nigel Wright on the other hand is definitely a 'confirmed bachelor' but is a deeply devout Anglican and was a prominent member of the Anglican-Catholic movement in Toronto. He's also celibate...and I'm not going to tell you how I know that :). I was very sad to see him willingly take the fall for Harper over the Senate spending scandal.
