The Canadian What Now?

Huh. I had no idea...

Canada is sending its navy back to the far northern Arctic port of Churchill after a 30-year absence.
Canada has a...navy? Hum. I thought they had sold all their ships as scrap metal to finance other aspects of life far more important to socialism.

Guess not. Will wonders never cease?

As long as we're not this article, there's a question I'd like answered having to do with this oft heard environmentalist refrain:

They [environmentalists] say the Arctic is one of the last of the earth's relatively untouched pristine frontiers and that a rush to exploit it will have a devastating impact on marine mammals and the rest of the fragile eco-system there.
Could someone please point out an eco-system that has ever been identified by environmentalists as 'robust', 'resilient' or otherwise capable of coexisting with human beings?

Seriously. Just one.

It's sort of like grade inflation. When it's not possible to earn less than a C, A's and B's are devalued. Similarly, the rhetorical device claiming an ecosystem is in danger of being irreversibly disrupted is rendered impotent when every single ecosystem is labeled 'fragile' and must be 'protected' lest we run the risk, nay the certainty of 'devastating' it (including cute, fuzzy animals) in our rush to 'exploit' every dang square inch of spaceship Earth.

Just wondering.
