PM to appear on Corner Gas

REGINA (CP) _ Everyone is being coy about whether Prime Minister Stephen Harper will be making a cameo appearance on Corner Gas in the new fall season.

Harper is in Regina for a golf-club barbecue and the CBC says his trip will include filming a segment to be used on the show.

Neither the prime minister’s office nor the show’s executive producer, Virginia Thompson, would confirm that but they wouldn’t deny it, either.

Harper wouldn’t be the first politician to do a Corner Gas walk-on. Saskatchewan Premier Lorne Calvert has done a guest spot and so has former prime minister Paul Martin.

Corner Gas, now in its fourth season on CTV, is filmed at a Regina soundstage and on location in Rouleau, Sask., 40 kilometres south of the city.
