Arctic Sovereignty From Another Point of View

Even with the recent news that Canadian politicians have discovered reason, it has been fun to occasionally talk about Arctic Sovereignty with the Danes, given that Canadian folks have portrayed them as card-carrying members of the Axis of Icy Imperialism© along with Russia and the US.  So, one member of parliament chatted with me about the required visits of one of Denmark's few ships to Greenland and the contested area (Hans Island) and the deployment of Danish forces to take down the Canadian flag and replace it with a Danish one.  

The Dane put it in terms of Canadian aggression.  Holy oxymoron, Batman!
