There are now three petitions fueling a heated debate – on whether or not  the Calgary International Airport should be renamed for outgoing prime minister Stephen J. Harper.

On Sunday, R. Curtis Mullen, a transplanted Canadian now living in the United States, set things off, when he created the original petition – saying Harper deserves the honour because he is the longest- serving prime minister from Western Canada.

And Conservative political pundit Ezra Levant has also launched a petition –  suggesting the airport should be renamed after Harper – saying airports in Toronto and Montreal are named after Liberal prime ministers – so why not give the honour to a Conservative from Calgary?

But there’s also a counter-petition called Prevent Renaming the Calgary International Airport.

Alison Cowan created that one.

She says naming one of the busiest airports in Canada for Harper would be a disgrace and she doesn’t want to see “political criminals” rewarded in Alberta.
