Artic Sovereignty vs North Korean embargo hmm


Why would we canada support the US in their blockade of North Korea when the US won't even respect our sovereignty in the north?

Then there is always the lack of sovereignty of our continental shelf, the 40% which lies outside the arbitrary 200 mile line.

The shaded areas are prime oil and gas exploration sites.

This is probably the real underlying reason. Oil and Gas potential not shipping.

You can bet your sweet booty it has more to do with what lies beneath than shipping. Though the shipping route is a bonus.
Alas, at what price to the people and environment.
