This entire excursion has been recognized for what it is. A very expensive photo-op deserving of the ridicule it has been receiving.
But this little stunt encapsulates the little man.According to one reporter awestruck by the audaciousness of our extemporaneous , personality charged PM (MEIB):
Look at the video. He put a helmet on. If you are going on an "impromtu...joyride" that takes everyone by "complete surprise", you don't stop and put on a helmet. And the cruisers and other ATVs didn't have time to react? Give me a break. They were told to give him a head start. At least he did do it at the NAC. (s/t: SD at truthfool.org)
Like every other aspect of this man's live it is stage managed. It has to be because he is a hollow shell. This is why he is driven to pull apart a complex, energetic and soulful Canada that others have built through decades of hard work. He wants to make it as empty as he is himself.

But back to the reason for the title of the post. With the exception of Mr. Ibbitson's notable bit of hagiographic journalism, the ridicule he has attracted has been extensive and well deserved. I am hopeful the MSM continues to describe these junkets as the expensive photo-ops they are.
