Canada To Establish Arctic Military Base

 

On Friday, Prime Minster Steven Harper announced that Canada will establish a military base and winter fight school in an attempt to re-establish sovereignty over the arctic region currently contested by Russia, Denmark, Norway and the US.

Harper said of the new facilities that they will "tell the world that Canada has a real, growing, long-term presence in the Arctic." The upcoming Canadian winter fighting school is to be built in Resolute Bay, part of the Northwest Passage.

Plans also include the renovation of an old dock and runway, which would be used to supply patrol vessels in the Arctic.

Announced last month by Harper were plans to construct six or eight ice-breaking patrol vessels, costing $7.1 billion.

the lease will be expiring soon, as global warming is here and worsening fast.

I thought the buzz word was "global change" now?

But anyway, why do these countries want this area again?

One word - Oil!

Also, a potentially faster shipping lane from the
Atlantic to the Pacific, and one metric assload of
diamonds, precious metals, etc.

Oh, and all the seals you can eat!

thanks to global warming where i live is now uncomfortably warm... personally i like the cold better... saves on A/C...lol, anything over 25C is a wee bit too warm for me.

More power to ya then LOL I'll stay somewhere nice and warm...I don't think I could handle winter weather in someplace like Colorado much less the Arctic...my blood is too thinned after all these years in desert cimate! :) Let me know if you need me to send mittens! :)
 
  by: ukitty24   08/15/2007 10:12 PM     
  @ukitty24  
 
mittens... lol i'm cold-blooded canadian... my skin is conditioned to -40C..

the latter is only half a joking, as i have litterally went for a 10 minute walk in a blizard wearing a t-shirt, it was -35C plus windchill, which may have easily made it feel like -45C... was pretty cold, or so i was told... actually i was told i was crazy for being in that weather in a t-shirt...lol, the snow was freezing almost instantly to my arm-hair and beard.

gets much colder than that though, though the last decade has been exceptionally warm by comparison wo what i remember. once before i was born we had snow in July.

Nope...no thank you...I guess I'll keep the mittens...I'll need them when it drops to 16 degrees here with the wind chill! LOL THAT'S just damn cold for me!!

  They don´t Want You Know The Thruth!  
 
You ask the right questions @ landers!

"I thought the buzz word was" global change "now?
But anyway, why do these countries want this area again?"

I know the answer.

Politicians lie to you. They have been lied several years on the
global geography and the existence on our world of foreign human
beings who we want to protect us. It´s simple.

It´s for this reason, that U.S. and Canada forces, want to provoke
Russia to launch a war against these foreign entities on our planet,
and to invite all nations of the world to create and fund (through
Carbon tax), the "World Government" at the next unnecessary global
warming summit in Mexico City on June / July 2010. And with our
French president, is favorable. Here is the Truth.

I invite you to read the Mirella Carbonatto article about this
subject, president of an association of human Rights in France,
http://www.sos-justice.com , and the first French woman that was
asking the 31 July and 04 August 2009, two express applications to
the Attorney of the Republic of Nice (France), for opening criminal
investigations concerning the so-called Pandemic Flu-A, and a
formal request for EXPRESSLY SECRET DEFENSE IMPOSED ON THE
UFO EVIDENCE AND E-T to Mr. Nicolas Sarkozy, President of French
Republic.

This Article is Emergency to READ!

I invite you to also read books that appear on her
Blog at the end of her article. Another reality that your
Government doesn´t want you to know!. Wake up!.

Whether you like it or not, a World criminal organization
prepares War Arctic operations to Aliens community, currently
living Inside our planet. The planet Earth has ever been around.
It is hollow.

Read this book also, that your government
doesn´t want you read:

Thanks

JFK.
