Self-satisfied Harper... Honestly speaking, always did not and still don't like him at all. While some Canadians see strong politician in Stephen, standing his certain ground and defending Canadian claims in Arctic region, me personally see in him that silly mercenary creature that has totally forgotten it due to which region exactly Canada currently is one of the Arctic club's members. Yeah, the fact that in far 1995 in Quebec people voted to stay as a part of Canada does not mean that in 2013 in Ottawa they can treat us here like dirt! Correct me please if I'm wrong here but doesn't the Constitution of this country grant equal shares in country's natural resources to all of us?? Well, in Canada Quebec got the most extensive outlet to the polar seas... meanwhile federal authorities (Harper and all his team) got certain plans already to use all Arctic's welfare potential in UNSETTLED (I stress it!) Nunavut, Northern-West territories and Yukon! Believe, I do not actually mean to freak somebody here, but in January in Quebec we're going to hold a kind of referendum, basing on a result of which (with probability 99.9%) local authorities will do everything to ban international Arctic activity particularly including every initiative coming from Ottawa, until people living in Quebec won't receive guarantees on the prescribed them by (!) the country's Constitution Arctic fruits.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is what I've come up with so far:

Churchill, Manitoba is Canada's principal seaport on the Arctic Ocean.

The boundaries of Quebec doesn't even pass into the Arctic circle. Only the boundaries of Yukon, NWT, and Nunavut do.

Areas of particular interest related to Canadian Arctic resources include:

- The Beaufort Sea (offshore from Yukon and NWT) ; oil drilling

- The Mary River project (iron ore) and various other gold, copper, and other mines in Nunavut

- Various diamond mines in NWT

For the oil and natural gas that will (presumably) be extracted from the Arctic, pipelines are being planned. My understanding is that those pipelines that are envisioned at this stage run North-South, so BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba would presumably be of more importance there than Quebec.
