'Prime Minister Of Cannibal': MP Ryan Leef Fudges Stephen Harper's Introduction (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

We've heard Stephen Harper called a villain, a male Margaret Thatcher and even the worst thing that's ever happened to Canada. But a cannibal?

That's what Yukon MP Ryan Leef mistakenly called Harper during an introduction for the prime minister on Monday night in Carcross (Caribou Crossing).

"It is an honour beyond compare to ask you to join me in welcoming back to the Yukon the prime minister of cannibal," Leef said.

The MP quickly recovered, but not quickly enough to avoid the notice of the PM.

"Thank you Ryan for that kind introduction, but you've confirmed some rumours about me I think," Harper said.

Harper is currently in the Arctic for his annual tour. Besides being accidentally accused of eating his own kind, Harper has spent time touring a gold mine, riding an ATV and petting puppies.

I guess even man eaters need some R&R from time to time.
