Toronto’s main airport is named after a Liberal Prime Minister, Lester Pearson. Montreal’s main airport is named a Liberal Prime Minister, Pierre Elliot Trudeau. And Saskatoon’s airport is named after Conservative Prime Minister, John Diefenbaker.
Calgary's airport is the third busiest airport in Canada -- but it doesn't have a name. It's called the Calgary International Airport or YYC, its letter name.
So why not rename it the Stephen Harper International Airport?
Harper's been a major figure in Calgary for more than 20 years. First elected as an MP in 1993. United the right; beat the Liberals three times. Helped change the country.
Let's rename the Calgary International Airport, the Stephen Harper International Airport. It wouldn’t be Harper’s style — he’s not a show-off, he’s not about selfies, and an airport named after you is the ultimate selfie.
But he deserves it.
