The Northwest Passage Modern Day Issues

Modern day issues in Canada's Arctic Northwest Passage. It is in English and talks about other Countries wanting to drill In the Northwest Passage and causing issues for Canada.




What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

I learned a lot about why The Northwest Passage is so important to take care of and monitor. I also learned that so many other countries are interested in The Northwest Passage. We should be able to patrol our Arctic and keep countries out.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

I want Fellow Canadians to learn what's going on up in are Northwest Passage, in Canada's true Northern Arctic. We need to take action because if we don't another country might take it over, if we don't protect it. We need to understand these issues and make sure are government helps us to protect it.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

The Modern Day Issues I studied for My Project in The Northwest Passage still effect Canada today. Over the years Canada has tried but failed to keep countries out of it Northern Passage because they need other Canadians to help them. We need to keep protecting are Arctic with more spirit otherwise the issues will still effect Canada in the future.
