One day near the turn of the millennium, "This Hour Has 22 Minutes" cohost Rick Mercer visited the United States to shoot a segment called "Talking to Americans." Mercer spent several hours asking people on the street whether they agreed that all terrain vehicles (ATVs) should be kept out of a Canadian ecological park called Joe Clark's Hole. "So you'd prefer to walk rather than take an ATV?" he asked one young man. "I'd bring a bicycle," the man replied. "Congratulations Canada," another man declared, "on offering bilingual tourism in Joe Clark's hole!"
Joe Clark, of course, is the name of a former Canadian Progressive Conservative Prime Minister.
