Will photo of dead refugee boy bring Harper down?

The Globe and Mail published on its front page a picture of dead Kurd boy being carried from the water. An excerpt from Mark McKinnon's story:
“'Migrant crisis? No, Europe is facing a moral crisis,' read an online headline in The Globe and Mail.
"But this crisis is also a Canadian one. The Ottawa Citizen reported that Aylan and his family – mother Rehan, father Abdullah and five-year-old brother Galip – were rejected in June by Canada’s refugee system. Their desperate attempt to reach Europe was motivated in part by Citizenship and Immigration Canada’s rejection of their application to be resettled in British Columbia, where they have relatives who were willing to sponsor them."
