"To Increase the defence presence in the North, as part of the government's strategy for Arctic defence."

I need to start out by saying that there is a military background running through the family tree. I was even a reservist at one time in my life myself. But having read a lot of northern history on such things as the Northwest Passage, the Gold Rush, the Construction of the Alaska Highway, the CANOL Road and the DEW Line, I read a Lieutenant-Colonel's quote and get the feeling that history is repeating itself.
