Territorial sovereignty in the Canadian North: R42-3/1963-7E-PDF

a historical outline of the problem /

"From time to time one reads reports in the press concerning the status of Canada's northern territories, perhaps with the added comment that measures have been taken, or must be taken, to safeguard our sovereignty there. Many Canadians, unconcerned about the North, do not realize that title to these territories has been acquired with a measure of difficulty. They are still less likely to appreciate that the issues involved have bedeviled responsible officials in Ottawa literally since Confederation, and have their roots much further back in history. This paper will attempt to sketch briefly the highlights of the problem as affecting land territory only."--p. 1.
