Investigator

I've been having a pretty busy summer and haven't been following much in the way of news as much as I usually would. News about the recent discovery of the HMS Investigator has caught my attention, history buff and northern enthusiast that I am. There's more happening in our Arctic than most people would realize from reading the mainstream media. It's refreshing to see a story that isn't about social or government issues or Parliamentary rows over arctic sovereignty issues.

It's a great story, and my heart is with the archaeologists who will be able to spend the time they need getting images of this magnificent vessel.

Nevertheless, the news has not escaped being swept up in the sovereignty cyclone -- the spin from Ottawa has been palpable, and I'd wager it cost as much to fly Jim Prentice up there to Mercy Bay as it did for the rest of the expedition!

Nevertheless, it's exciting news.
