“Our monthly art co-op meetings used to be chaotic. It wasn’t uncommon for people to talk over one another, to shout, or get angry at each other. But since we invited Flat Daddy Harper to join the collective, a strange kind of calm has descended upon us. Because he’s so clearly interested in our work, and so adamant to see the Arts generously supported in this country, we’ve become more focused, more determined to be the best artists we can be. We want Flat Daddy Harper to be proud of us!”

“I’m almost ashamed to put these words on paper because to see them in black and white will make me feel like a wimp. But the truth is that before Flat Daddy Harper came into my life I was having a really, really hard time painting. I couldn’t understand where this block was coming from. Could it be that trying to create in an environment that was actively hostile to my life’s work was having an unconscious effect on my ability to create?”

But once I propped Flat Daddy Harper in my studio, I found that the images just flew onto the canvas. I’m so inspired by the presence of a leader who believes in the value of my work.”

“I went to your website ‘cause I thought it was a joke. But what it’s done to my life is no joke! Seeing Flat Daddy Harper strum the guitar and make music – well, Hey! That’s what I do. That must mean that what I do is important and meaningful.
p.s. I’m just putting the polishing touches on my 45th song since visiting your website. Consider this a tip: You’ll soon be hearing me on the CBC.”

“I never thought I’d have the opportunity to tell the Prime Minister why the identity of this country is inextricably bound to the talents and creations of its artists. But Flat Daddy Harper listened as I made that connection – and more to the point, he seemed to get it! Why can’t the real thing be as receptive?”

“As firm believers in the personal and societal benefits of the arts, my wife and I want our daughter, Sara, to grow up surrounded by music, art, literature, drama. We believe exposure to the Arts will give her a strong grounding in self expression and enable her to think creatively and critically. We also think it will be an avenue to understanding other cultures, other ways of being.

“Sara was only six months old when Harper took office so it’s hard to feel hopeful. Then along came Flat Daddy Harper. He’s standing in our family room where every day we encourage him to remember the importance of the Arts to children. Sara loves him so much she’s taken to drawing on him.”

“I know that Americans encourage people to kiss their Flat Daddies. Well I closed my eyes, screwed up my courage, and kissed Flat Daddy Harper. I suspect that he was more responsive than the real thing.”

“Frankly I’d given up hope. It seemed that the Harper government was incapable of grasping what seems evident to the rest of us; Art matters! But since I got my first Flat Daddy Harper I’m able to dream – and hope – once again.”
