    I have asked this question of all the Presidential candidates (I haven't got an answer yet): "Do you accept Canada's and Russia's claims of the Northwest Passage and North Sea Route as territorial waters? If not, do you intend to use the Navy to patrol these waters when they become navigable? Would you do so over the objections of Canada and/or Russia?"

    It's an important issue: will the U.S. continue to expand its imperialistic policies under a Dem administration? Will it go so far as to deny the authority of sovereign nations to assert control over their own legitimate territory?

    I can only hope that PM Harper, as bad as he is on just about everything else, will at least attempt to diplomatically pressure the US not to invade our country. And I hope Putin reacts in a way that doesn't lead to either a US imperialistic presence on Russian waters or another Cold War or worse.
