World AIDS Conference sans Harper

The present Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper, has not accepted an invitation to appear at the Toronto conference, disappointing its organizers.Dr. Helene D. Gayle, the president of the International AIDS Society, an independent professional group that is chief organizer of the meeting told the New York Times, "AIDS conferences can sometimes be hard on politicians."

Yep that must be it, or else its a simple case of Harper Homophobia. Because it can't be for any religious or moral reason since the majority of cases of AIDS in the world affect heterosexuals.

How can we determine what his alternate commitments are? Putting them in with this story might make him look rather foolish to turn down an international conference on home soil.
