Global News: Icrebreaker Expedition Could Bolster Canada’s Claim to Arctic

An article published today in Global News notes that a 47-day Canadian Coast Guard icebreaker trek from Halifax to Norway to the North Pole “could bolster the country’s claim to Arctic sovereignty.”  The mission will include scientific research activity and seabed mapping, and the participation of researchers from the European Union and United States.  Canada’s Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard Dominic LeBlanc said that defining the country’s boundaries has “got to be based on science, it’s got to be based on international law and those two concepts come together beautifully in this mission that begins tomorrow.”
