Stephen Harper Birthday
Happy Birthday Stephen Harper. What would you get our Prime Minister?

Happy Birthday Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Our PM turns 53 today. And we thought it'd be polite to wish him a happy birthday.

His wife, Laureen Harper, came by the office and gave the prime minister a cake, according to Harper's spokesperson.

Now that the PM has a strong, stable, Conservative majority government we're really not sure what to get him. So we asked Huffington Post Canada readers on Twitter what they would give our fearless leader.

Here are some of your responses:
