Default Nunavut



Anyone ever looked at this area using Google Earth? Much of it is a vast maize of land and water.

Today is the anniversary of Nunavut becoming the newest territory of Canada back on April 1, 1999. It was split off from the Northwest Territories.

Nunavut covers 1/5th of Canada, and is about twice the size of the state of Alaska.

It really is an amazing area and mostly unexplored. I also fully expect that there are vast stores of coal, oil, natural gas, and probably diamonds to be found there.

That is one of the reasons our F-18s have been busy lately chasing Russian bombers back to their side of the pond. Between them and Denmark the sooner we get the new armed Naval icebreakers in there to protect our border the better.

You are right about that. Russia and China loves the anti-oil protesters in the U.S. and most likely they have their people stirring it up and paying off some politicians. China is already gearing up to move offshore rigs that will operate out of Cuba and will be set up to slant drill just outside of U.S. waters.

I also read that Russia and China have started building large numbers of very large icebreakers and they are in the design stage for building offshore drilling rigs that can stand up to pack ice.
