Sharing an Arctic adventure

Canada will collaborate with Denmark on a patrol of the North, reported the Canadian Press. A Danish dogsled team, part of that country's military, will join approximately 150 soldiers and Canadian Rangers on a mission next month. Operation Nunalivut will see the two nations' forces venture out onto the sea ice northwest of Ellesmere Island. Both militaries are gearing up for increased Arctic surveillance in the coming years thanks to the rapid melting of the ice pack and the opening of the Northwest Passage.
