The Harper government has spent over half a billion dollars on public service ads!

OK, so we've figured out how to propel a small device through space at 60,000 kilometres an hour for 10 years, and then land it on a comet 6 billion kilometers away.

For that matter, humans first operated a solar-powered car on the moon almost 40 years ago. But the trip to Whitby still seems too challenging.
