The Arctic and the Northwest Passage: The Euro threat

It's not just those damn' Yankees:
EU's Arctic Intentions Worry Canadians
More on the Arctic and sovereignty here, here, and here. See especially:
"Harper's patriot games"
If the ice does indeed go pretty rapidly away, I don't think our claim that the Passage is "internal waters" has much chance in international law. If the ice remains the issue will stay moot. Whilst Canada anxiously awaits:
The "Diefenbreaker"--in 2017!?!
Good luck on that date.

Yankees bear watching. Believe me-- we've been trying to get rid of them since 1865. ;-)
