Some people have complained that the new red, white and blue paint job on the Prime Minister’s airplane makes it look too American.
Others have complained that the colours are too much like those of the Conservative Party.
However, some of us know that the do-over is really an homage to the late, forgotten Pacific Western Airlines:
. . . once known informally as Western Canada’s national airline, which used the same hues, and retained them when it morphed into the also-late and only-slightly-better-remembered Canadian Airlines:
Plainly what the Prime Minister is really doing here is proclaiming that, yes, western Canada has conquered the rest of the nation and, while he might never be so rude or politically stupid as to say so with his outside voice, he can say it with his airplane.
We here at BoB would like to encourage the Prime Minister in this newfound mix of conservative longing, imperial assertion, and colour theory. Hence, in the spirit of our previous collection of Stephen Harper nudes, we offer these further ideas for imposing classical western couture on everybody else.
