This is coolbert:
Canadians are generally described as being such nice people. And in my experience they most certainly are.
Canadians also able to express themselves, "this is ours!!".
"‘Use it or lose it’ — Harper’s Arctic strategy more than just a political gambit"
"CAMBRIDGE BAY, Nunavut — Of all the sovereignty-boosting, patriotism-inducing, national myth-building projects this prime minister has taken on over the past eight years — and there have been a few of them now — Stephen Harper’s quixotic quest to find the lost ships of the doomed 19th-century English explorer John Franklin may appear the most vainglorious. The same applies, at first glance, to the Conservatives’ entire Arctic strategy."
"Canada, a northern power to rival newly aggressive Russia? Pshaw. Canada, asserting property rights over a body of water, the Northwest Passage, that even the United States politely insists is international? Silly. And yet, it isn’t."
NO, NOT SILLY!! Sovereignty must be established and maintained. The Canadian running sovereignty patrols [SOV PATS] on a regular basis, the irregular Canadian Rangers at the forefront of efforts to maintain Canadian ownership to that part of the far north within the traditionally and internationally recognized boundaries and domain that constitutes CANADA!
"The Canadian Rangers . . . a sub-component of the Canadian Forces reserve, which provide a military presence in Canada's sparsely settled northern, coastal, and isolated areas . . . the primary role of this part-time force is to conduct surveillance or sovereignty patrols (SOV PATS) as required. Some Canadian Rangers also conduct inspections of the North Warning System (NWS) sites and act as guides and scouts when southern forces are in their Area of Operations"
Land and territory for which the Canadian government has legitimate concerns, territorial claims and disputes in the far arctic a "growth business".
CANADA DOES NOT WANT TO BE LEFT BEHIND! NOR TREATED AS A SECOND-CLASS CITIZEN AMONG THE VARIOUS WORLD POWERS!
