Brian Mulroney

Former Prime Minister of Canada, who in 2006, was praised by Corporate Knights Magazine, as Canada's greenest Prime Minister.
Stephen Harper was among the guests and told reporters earlier in the day, that the celebration showed a new understanding of Mulroney by environmentalists.
He started out by saying: "At the time, I don't think there was any environmentalist who had anything good to say about Mr. Mulroney," Harper said of Mulroney's time as prime minister. HA! Irony anyone?

An amazing and diverse slate of guests this week! I attended the Lily Allen interview taping - she is as sincere and disarmingly adorable as ever and if they didn't edit anything from the original, you don't want to take this girl on in Scrabble! Four letter word indeed.
