Matty Matheson is the star of Keep it Canada on Munchies, but for 36 hours, he was also a national correspondent for VICE on the trail of Canada's elusive prime minister: Stephen Harper. To get a correspondent on the media circuit of the Conservative Party's campaign costs $3,000 per day, so we figured, with that kind of coin leaving the building, why not send the most animated and hilarious person we know? Watch as Matty asks Stephen Harper two questions, fraternizes with his new friends on the media bus, flies on Harper's jet, and chats with protesters at Conservative rallies.
