Peter MacKay: And I think we should enact a statute prohibiting women from owning shoes.
Stephen Harper: No. They need shoes.
MacKay: Why? Women should be barefoot, pregnant, and in the kitchen. Shoe ownership only encourages dissent.
Harper: They need shoes. What if they walk through a puddle of water or something? If they have no shoes, their feet will get wet.
MacKay: But why should they walk through a puddle of water in the kitchen?
Harper: They can't stay in the kitchen all the time. Sometimes, they have to go grocery shopping.
Note: Statements were not published in Hansard and are therefore unofficial. So I guess it never really happened.
