CENTRE BLOCK reports that Stevie had a hissy-fit: "Less amusing translation of Brazilian article on Harper bathroom tiff". I can't believe this, this is so embarrassing. H/T Scanner, thanks.
Since Brazilian diplomats denied his request to speak to the press at the Presidential palace, Harper was already in a bad mood when he arrived for lunch. He demanded the shift in protocol at the lunch event, and locked himself in the private bathroom of ministro Antonio Patriota (Brazil’s Foreign Affairs Minister) while he waited for a reply.
