Why is Russia getting ready for war in the Arctic?

2 March 2017. This thought-provoking article should be a 'must read' for politicians and military leaders. It conclusion, 'It would be wise for Canada to follow a balanced policy: to build capacity in the Arctic that would allow it to employ the right combination of soft and hard power, and to recognize that weakness only creates temptations for a Russia that is far more unstable and opportunistic than Moscow’s proclamations in favor of a zone of peace and cooperation suggest.' Should be engraved in stone and placed at the front doors of the headquarters of both the Department of Foreign Affairs and the Department of National Defence.
