The North is part of Canada's Brand, but what do we know of it and its people? This course will explore the complexities and uncertainties of this part of Canada, where the pace of climate change is affecting the lives of the people, land and sea animals. Michael Byers' book, Who Owns the Arctic?, updated on Google during 2016, will guide us as we examine major issues such as Governance, the International Law of the Sea, Geopolitics, Resources, Industries, Trade and Shipping. Our key concern will be inclusion and respect for indigenous people and how to balance the Economy and the Environment.
