Stephen And Laureen Harper Tear Up Delicate Yukon Ecosystem On ATV

"Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his wife Laureen rode a couple of ATVs through a delicate ecosystem in Yukon Tuesday, an activity that most people in the territory say must be better regulated.

In a photo-op blazoned across news websites and broadcasts throughout the day, the Harpers can be seen smiling as they ride the sandy dunes of the Carcross Desert, a geological oddity caused by an extinct glacier, south of Whitehorse.

But the territorial government doesn’t have any rules for riding ATVs, or all-terrain vehicles, in the wilderness, a hands-off policy that has left alpine meadows, wetlands and even the tiny Carcross Desert crisscrossed with tread marks."

The birth of a banana republic

Under Prime Minister Stephen Harper's Conservatives, committees have become highly polarized and hyper-partisan. Shockingly for a democracy, they now operate mostly in secret, away from the electorate's prying eyes.

A secret democracy isn't a democracy.
