Always expect the unexpected.

I like the wording in the article.

"Since one of the Canadian Coast Guard’s prime missions is to provide icebreaking for commercial shipping it will be interesting to see if Canada Prime Minister Stephen Harper's Government views this as an opportunity for good public relations to help recreational yachts transiting the Northwest Passage."

Set a precedent and it could prove a costly one.
