Valuing family: Children as campaign assets

Macleans reports that in an interview with the CTV Stephen Harper refers to his children as "great campaign assets". For an economist to refer to his children that way says a lot about how he values family- as an asset, like a stock portfolio, or a second car.

This guy is a family-values conservative? All hat, no cattle...
