METCHOSIN, B.C. (CP) - A young man waving a *****-shaped squirt gun was warned Friday not to enter a building where Prime Minister Stephen Harper was about to speak.
A plainclothes member of Harper's security detail was overheard telling the youth it would not be advisable for him to enter the building with the squirt gun.
The red-faced youth walked away from the building followed by several friends.
Harper was at Pearson College, located about 25 kilometres west of Victoria, to announce his government's $1.5 billion renewable energy initiative.
It is not known if the young male was a student at Pearson College.
