The Danish and Americans have been trying to lay claim to the lands and waters of the Canadian North. Although it may seem trivial to protect a 1km square island in the Arctic Ocean. Canadians need to understand that the deeper implications. With that small rock comes a claim to all waters within 200km. Think fishing and shipping rights, as well as the rights to off shore drilling and mining. There is a lot of economic potential tied to such a tiny rock. Then there are the socio-political implications. Although Canada is peaceful country, involved in mediation and humanitarian aid. We must also realize that we are not pushovers. We know our rights, we know what is ours, and we will stand up for our place in the world. O CANADA.
