The Auditor General says the Prime Minister's residence at 24 Sussex Dr. is falling apart and needs major renovations.
The needed renovations, says the National Capital Commission, would cost taxpayers an estimated $10 million.
If you think that sounds too high, you obviously haven't hired a plumber lately.
Anyway, Prime Minister Harper has nixed the idea of any renovations, saying he is willing to put up with the bad plumbing, the faulty wiring and the ghost of Mackenzie King's mother.
I say, however, the Prime Minister of Canada deserves decent living conditions.
So here's my idea.
Let's send Harper and his family off on a week long holiday somewhere (anywhere but Mexico) and then while they're gone we invite the people from Extreme Makeover: Home Edition up to Canada.
They fix up the house lickety-split and then the whole nation can watch the emotional reveal when Harper returns to Ottawa.
The Prime Minister might even get choked up enough to shake his son's hand!
Now that's good television.
