The reasons go on and on, and are documented in the vid. and "full story'
Mr. Martel finally stopped when someone from the PMO revealed that Harpo can't read..................you believe that??
Or, apparently.. Yann is kind of being a turd and rather than request a sit down with the Prime Minister he orchestrated this incredibly stupid media ***** venture.
"I'm tired of sending books of poetry as little political jabs. Books are too beautiful. And books are incredibly patient. They'll be here long after Prime Minister Harper is gone and long after I'm gone." --Yann
Having written a book and understanding the difficulty involved in the process I find it irritating when (Artists) try to act smart instead of acting smart. Cripe even Bono has the common sense to request an audience with the PM or a President. I am a steadfast supporter of the arts, but acts like this only undermine the legitimacy of Mr. Yann's very valid cause.
