Posted: Updated:
Print Article

Stephen Harper has been Canada's Prime Minister since 2006 and will be until at least 2015, by which time he will have become the sixth longest serving PM in our nation's history, behind William Lyon Mackenzie King, Sir John A. Macdonald, Pierre Trudeau, Sir Wilfrid Laurier and Jean Chrétien — illustrious company.

However, while Harper has without doubt been the most important figure in 21st century Canadian politics so far, many citizens still know little about him. Harper's Facebook page has just 67,208 likes, compared to more than 24 million likes for Barack Obama. Even if you factor in relative populations, Obama has roughly 36 times as many Facebook followers as Harper. And the lack of interest doesn't stop with Facebook.

Harper has around 180,000 followers on Twitter. Obama has 11.1 million.

A search for "Stephen Harper Biography" on Amazon.ca yield 26 results. The same search for Obama? 362 results.
