Arguments presented by David J. Bercuson and

This issue is debated in the current Legion Magazine with Ernie Regehr arguing the “No” side and David Bercuson, of the University of Calgary’s Centre for Military, Security, and Strategic Studies, arguing “Yes.” Regehr notes that with today’s increasingly accessible Arctic, and Russia being its most prominent military presence, the question of boosting Canada’s Arctic military operations is a prudent one, but context matters.
The debate is part of the magazine’s “Face to Face” feature. To view the full debate, visit Legion Magazine at the link below.
