Harper's New Imperial Shuttle

Stephen Harper is getting a new paint job on his PM jet befitting his *ahem* status as a world leader. The standard light blue-gray paint used by Canadian military aircraft isn't snazzy enough for election campaigns diplomatic visits.  

In addition to being in Conservative colours (where exactly is the blue in Canada's flag?), the paint scheme involves using paint that has "a 400 dollar price difference PER GALLON in the cost" according to the designer's caution to the PMO.

Still, I think you'll agree the new Imperial Shuttle is a striking reminder of Harper's status...
