Canada to join Arctic study

Canada and its Arctic allies will launch a major study this spring to help Northern nations cope with the effects of climate change, the Chronicle Herald reported. The speedy melting of the polar ice is driving the Arctic Council, to launch the Arctic Change Assessment. Foreign Affairs Lawrence Cannon will announce the details when the Council meets in Greenland in May. Canada is expected to play an important role in the study, since its two-year role in the rotating presidency in the organization will end in 2015 when the study is to be released.
