Canadian Arctic Sovereignty

Time to Take Yes for an Answer on the Northwest Passage

Franklyn Griffiths September 5th, 2008

In this chapter, part of the  volume Northern Exposure: Peoples, Powers and Prospects for Canada’s North, renowned Arctic policy expert Franklyn Griffiths argues for a radical reconsideration of the way most Canadians view our strategic interests in the Arctic. He calls for Canada and the United States to act not only as joint stewards, but also as neighbours determined to proceed with practical cooperation on priority issues.
