Political Opposition Party in Canada wants More Spending in Defense of Canadian Arctic

Stephen Harper, the leader of the Progressive Conservatives party in Canada, which is the current opposition political party, vows to spend more money in protecting Canada's sovereignty in the Arctic if he is elected the next prime minister of Canada. Harper says he will buy more icebreakers and set up a northern scanning system to protect Canada's Arctic. There have been nations whose ships and submarines have traveled through the Canadian Arctic waters without the permission of the Canadian government and Harper claims that this must stop.
