Harper, Minister of National Defence Peter MacKay and Chief of the Defence Staff of the Canadian Forces General Walter Natynczyk visited the nation’s 900 troops participating in the “Canadian Forces’ largest annual demonstration of Canada’s sovereignty in the Arctic” [1] which included “Canada’s air force, navy, coast guard…testing their combat capabilities in the frigid cold.” [2]

The battle for Arctic supremacy

March 30, 2010

The Arctic territories represent vast amounts of untapped natural resources and a supply route for shipping that has never before been accessible. Thanks to melting glaciers, the possibility to explore for oil and move ships through the arctic is not too far away. Canada, Russia, Norway, Denmark and the United States recently held meetings at the G-8 summit to discuss the issue that has all 5 nations up against the other. Unfortunately for Sweden, Finland and Iceland, these three countries which lay claim to the Arctic as well, were left out of the meeting. Why did the Canadians snub them?

“This Text Is an Extremely Dangerous Document for Developing Countries”: G77 Chief Condemns Secret US-Danish Climate Deal

The UN climate talks are in disarray here in Copenhagen after developing countries reacted furiously to leaked documents that show world leaders will next week be asked to sign an agreement that hands more power to rich countries and sidelines the UN’s role in all future climate change negotiations. Moments before we went on the air, Lumumba Stanislaus Di-Aping, the Sudanese chair of the group of 132 developing countries known as G77, condemned the leaked document. [includes rush transcript]
