Territorial Pissings

In the ongoing Hans Island saga, the BBC is reporting that Mr. Harper has told the US Ambassador to piss off:

The United States defends its sovereignty, the Canadian government will defend our sovereignty.

Apparently, we’re going to build three new armed ice-breakers. You hear that Denmark? Your elite figure skating brigade will be useless now.

Update: Richard pointed out that a Canadian Sea King helicopter was forced to ditch off the coast of Denmark this evening. I don’t know what these shifty Danes are up to. Feb. 2nd
