For those who may have missed it, Stephen Harper recently went for an unscheduled joy ride on the tarmac of the Tuktoyaktuk, N.W.T. airport for no apparent reason, other than to amuse himself and/or to show his macho side and to impress those on hand.
Too bad for Steve that this type of random act isn't permitted under the Canadian Air Regulations.
What was Harper's response: "I make the rules".
OKAY, well then here are the rules that you so recklessly disregarded. the rules that we (apparently not You) are governed by:
302.10 No person shall
(a) operate an aerodrome referred to in subsection 302.01(1) unless an airport certificate is issued in respect of that aerodrome;
(b) knowingly use an airport in a manner contrary to a condition set out in the airport certificate;
(c) walk, stand, drive a vehicle, park a vehicle or aircraft or cause an obstruction on the movement area of an airport, except in accordance with permission given
(i) by the operator of the airport, and
(ii) where applicable, by the appropriate air traffic control unit or flight service station;
