Prime Minister Stephen Harper was the victim of a practical joke, or “hoax,” on Tuesday.
Someone broke into the website of the Conservative party. (Harper is the leader of the Conservatives.) They posted a fake article about him.
The article said Harper had been rushed to hospital after he had choked on some hash browns at breakfast.
It said that his wife, Laureen, called 911 because the Prime Minister couldn’t breathe and that he was taken by helicopter to a hospital in Toronto.
