Simulated talks show possible solution for Arctic dispute: Follow up

In my post of 27 February I stated that it was not clear whether the view that ice breakers were needed "rather" than strengthened arctic patrol vessels was Mr. Byers' personal one or the collective view of all the negotiators. So I interviewed one of the participants, Rob Huebert, who confirmed such a view must be Byers' own. Professor Huebert believes the collective view was that Canada should purchase new icebreakers to complement the planned Canadian ice strengthened Arctic patrol vessels.
