Stephen Harper has pledged to spend $5.3 billion Canadian ($0.50 American) protecting the Arctic waters from the Americans, Russians, and Danes, who are apparently planning to take it over for... um... for... um... well... uh... I got nothin'. Maybe polar bear pelts. That's it. Canada must protect her polar bears. Hey, it's better than any other reason I can come up with.
Apparently, Canada has no better use for $5.3 billion Canadian. Hey Harper, why don't you give it to us? We could use the help with our deficit.
