CORNWALLIS ISLAND, Canada
To match feature Canada-Sovereignty
Canadian part-time military volunteers recruited from the aboriginal Inuit people ride their snowmobiles as they leave a meeting off Cornwallis Island, Nunavut April 9, 2006. They had gathered on the frozen sea off Cornwallis Island at the end of a two-week patrol designed to boost Canadian sovereignty in the remote and resource-rich High Arctic. After decades of virtually ignoring its remote, frozen Arctic lands, Canada is belatedly trying to assert its sovereignty over a gigantic region rich in mineral resources. The 1.3 million square miles (3.4 million sq km) of ice, rock and sea comprise 40 percent of Canada's land mass yet forces stationed there are minuscule -- 190 soldiers, 1700 part-time Inuit volunteers and four small, slow aircraft.
