Canada leverages Franklin expedition in dispute over Arctic waters

While Canada's discovery of one of the ships from the Franklin expedition may have appeared to many as an important but innocuous archaeological find, it may, in fact, have significant political implications for both Canada and the U.S. During his announcement of the find, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper stated that the find "is truly a historic moment for Canada." He went on: "Franklin's ships are an important part of Canadian history given that his expeditions, which took place nearly 200 years ago, laid the foundations of Canada's Arctic sovereignty."

Canadian politicians who almost saw their country torn apart by an independence referendum in 1995 say pro-union British leaders have been slow to learn lessons from that campaign but can still take steps to win the vote Scotland will hold on Sept. 18. In a campaign with striking similarities to the Scottish vote, the predominantly French-speaking province of Quebec came within a whisker of deciding to split up Canada in the 1995 referendum, which saw support for separatism spike in the final week.
