The Arctic is believed to hold up to 25 percent of the planet’s untapped oil and gas supplies, and Russia, the U.S., Canada, Denmark and Norway have all been trying to assert jurisdiction over parts of the territory. Russia’s had submitted a bid for vast Arctic territories that could contain large quantities of oil and gas to the United Nations. In 2007, Moscow staked a symbolic claim to the Arctic seabed by dropping a canister containing the Russian flag on the ocean floor from a submarine at the North Pole. The Kremlin also has moved to beef up Russian military forces in the Arctic. The effort has included the restoration of a Soviet-era military base on the New Siberian Islands and other military outposts in the Arctic. Moscow has justified the activity by claiming that the new facilities are vital to protect shipping routes that link Europe to the Pacific Rim. Earlier this year, the military conducted sweeping maneuvers in the Arctic that involved 38,000 servicemen, more than 50 surface ships and submarines and 110 aircraft. As part of the drills, the military demonstrated its capability to quickly beef up its forces on the Arctic
.
Along with Canada, Russia and other Arctic nations are making competing United Nations bids over potentially lucrative Arctic lands, staking a claim on a region with reportedly 90 billion barrels worth of oil sitting untapped beneath the frozen crust. Canada has been one of the most vocal nations condemning Russia’s action.  Some former Canadian diplomats have suggested the Conservative government’s position on Ukraine is aimed at winning votes from Jewish- Ukrainian-Canadians in the next federal election. As it is a known fact Jews from Israel want to migrate to Ukraine.

.

” With estimates putting billions of square feet of natural gas and countless barrels of oil lying in the Arctic crust, Russia and other so-called Arctic states are circling the potential revenues at their doorstep. Putin, who presides over a major petro-economy in Russia, has made it his national and fiscal plan to conquer the Arctic. The Arctic is his gem and Russia is prepared to defend its claim.

.

Russia  says here needs a way to protect itself from the West. We have already assigned an air defense division to the fleet, and we will form a joint air and air defense army there,”  The Russian military would be reopening old airfields and building new ones, stationing new specially trained arctic soldiers in Siberian bases, and all the while installing radar detection sites capable of catching enemy aircraft.   The move is clearly in line with Russia’s overall plans of bolstering its northern presence to fend off the inevitable diplomatic claims of rival states like Canada, Greenland, the USA,  so-far formally undetermined international Arctic borders. So the Russian army is looking to new air Army in the north by 2015, with an eye at protecting hotly contested Arctic borders brings Russia in direct conflict with Canada and explains why the prime Minster of Canada Stephen Harper hates Putin  so much. “Once again I stress that we are not going to engage in the militarization of the Arctic. Our actions in the region are measured and reasonably moderate, and they are absolutely necessary to ensure Russian defense capabilities,” said Putin.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper,  has made plays for the Arctic too. He is dreaming of  Drones for the Arctic are at the top of his wish list, too, along with new fighter aircraft to patrol the frigid skies. In Canada’s ongoing obsession also with Arctic sovereignty the Harper government  deployed two icebreakers to the Arctic on a scientific mission to collect data for Canada’s official continental shelf submission to the United Nations: trying to prove the vast northern expanse is mostly its own.

.
The first of two planned scientific surveys—the second is set for summer 2015— the boats are destined for the Eurasian Basin on the eastern side of the Lomonosov Ridge, patrolling near the disputed Arctic seabed, which Russian claims to own.  With their eyes squarely on the wealth of oil and gas sitting underneath the Arctic crust, Vladimir Putin and Stephen Harper both understand the resource-rich potential for whichever country holds the most land in the North Pole. . hockey (8)

Science and nationalism aside, all of this Arctic voyaging comes at a time when Canada’s rivalry with Russia is reaching an international fever pitch. And with the war in Ukraine mounting tensions, there’s been no shortage of hostilities. ‘ Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Conservative MPs have been a false vocal critics of Russian President Vladimir Putin for months. . putin (3) . Canadian exporters now also have also been stung by Russia’s currency crisis and its retaliatory sanctions against the West over the crisis in Ukraine.   Companies from farm-equipment manufacturers to pork producers are affected.  The Russian market bought 563-million dollars worth of Canada’s agricultural exports in 2012 Richard Davies, a vice-president at pork and poultry processor in Caaaanada Olymel,  said the fallout from the Ukraine crisis has had a significant effect. Russia has struck back by slapping a ban on meat, seafood, milk and dairy products, fruit and vegetables from Canada, the U.S., the European Union, and other countries.  The Russian government has also limited subsidies, particularly to its agricultural sector. . PM Stephen Harper But even in the face of the Russians banning all Canadian food imports, or Canadian CF-18s intercepting Russian Tu-95s flying near Canadian airspace, the race for the Arctic is heating up,  Canada isn’t backing down http://motherboard.vice.com/read/canada-wants-to-scientifically-prove-it-owns-the-north-pole-?

Stephen Harper’s bad policy on Oil and Putin, where he says Russia has failed on many  fronts and has had no positive gains NEEDS A Re Adjustment.  As in his own province things look really bleaker now too. Prime Minister Stephen Harper was openly  punishing Russia but seems to have inflicted more pain on his own people instead. THE OIL PRICE DROP HAS HIT  CANADA  SEVERELY

.

CALGARY – Suncor Energy Inc. slashed $1-billion from its 2015 budget, with oil sands and East Coast projects getting deferred and 1,000 jobs eliminated. That was a day after Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. lopped $2.4-billion from its previously announced 2015 plan  and In oil boom town Fort McMurray, ‘it’s like the place has gone dead’ .  The  Plunging oil prices will cost Canada’s drilling industry close to 23,000 direct and indirect jobs this year, more than were lost during the 2009 downturn, according to updated forecast Thursday by the Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling. Oil-patch spending cuts  have escalated well into the billions of dollars represent money that won’t go to the Albertan workers. The drillers and oil-field service providers involved in fracking,  maintaining old wells and hauling gear around are just  the thin edge of the wedge in the oil-price collapse as the companies in that sector make even larger cuts to their work forces in the coming months. What a costly Harper fight with Russia for all Canadians.

.

Further more a surge of light oil from North Dakota and Texas is cutting into the earnings of Canadians who turn heavy oil sands into a lighter crude that fetches more from refiners. Producers in Alberta, home of the country’s greatest reserves, upgraded 20 percent less of the region’s crude in October than four years earlier, according to the province’s energy regulator. Two of five plants under construction were canceled and the province’s upgrading and refining capacity fell in 2013 for the first time in three decades. Companies are now sending record amounts of the heavy stuff on pipelines and trains to refineries in the U.S. Midwest and Gulf Coast, Projects including Suncor Energy Inc. (SU)’s Voyageur joint venture with France’s Total SA (FP) and Value Creation Inc.’s BA Energy Heartland were abandoned. Global oil prices, down by more than 50 percent since June, will make upgrading projects even more challenging because the price difference between heavy and light crude is narrower, U.S. output has risen 70 percent in the past five years as producers used horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing to tap into previously inaccessible shale rock layers thousands of feet below the Earth’s surface. Most of the increase has been in light, sweet crude, similar quality Alberta upgraders get from processing heavy, thick oil sands. The rising flows south of Canadian crude are drawing a backlash in Alberta from labor groups, who say jobs, not just oil, are being exported. Alberta’s 4.6 percent unemployment rate, second lowest in Canada after Saskatchewan, may increase after oil’s 55 percent drop in six months prompted some producers to curtail future investment. “Building upgraders in Alberta is seen by the industry as uneconomic,” Dinara Millington, a vice president at the Canadian Energy Research Institute, said in an e-mail Jan. 13. “The U.S. refining market is being flooded with the light crude and they wouldn’t necessarily want our light stuff.” http://www.businessweek.com/news/2015-01-20/shale-oil-growth-in-u-dot-s-dot-hurts-canadians-as-well-as-opec .

And “Canada, the oil sands’ poor image isn’t just a question of bad PR.  Anti-oil sands sentiment has made it nearly impossible to build the necessary pipeline connections producers need to get all that oil to market. TransCanada Corp.’s crossborder Keystone XL pipeline is in danger of being axed by U.S. President Barack Obama. The industry’s backup plan, Enbridge Inc.’s Northern Gateway pipeline to shipping terminals on the B.C. coast, has become bogged down in political and environmental controversy. Even TransCanada’s Energy East proposal, a sort of backup for the backup, has encountered unexpected political resistance in Ontario and Quebec—two provinces the diluted bitumen must transit through on its way to refineries in New Brunswick.”

” Alberta’s oilsands produce more greenhouse gas emissions than some European countries right now and will produce more than all of the world’s volcanoes in just 11 years if the pace of development continues, a new report says.  People will post 1001 excuses justifying this disaster.  http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2009/09/13/greenpeace-oilsands.html until it is too late to do anything about it.. Remember Chernobyl”

SADLY ECONOMICS DO CONTROL THE VIABILITY OF CANADA’S OIL SANDS PROJECTS.  Economics alone   SHOULD NOT now  control the direct oil sand extraction  process, engineering as well and also now not all firms are equally environmentally conscious, concerned so they all do now need to be better managed here, something that has falsely not been adequately done for sure so far.. and yes neither by the provincial or the federal governments HAVE DONE A GOOD JOB HERE. GREED AND PROFIT CANNOT BE ALLOWED TO OVER RULE SAFETY,  THE ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES, etc.,  .

Now the Prime Minister Stephen Harper has shut down the House of Commons repeatedly, jammed dozens of pieces of legislation into a few massive take-it-or-leave-it omnibus bills, fired public watchdogs, refused to allow parliamentarians to scrutinize government spending, withheld public information, gagged federal scientists and replaced Canada’s detailed census with an unreliable household survey. Under Harper, Ottawa has become increasingly opaque, inaccessible and unaccountable.  With the Oil price bottom dropping out the supposed  masterful economic manager,  with  his skewed self-image and his unwillingness to adjust to events stifle any one  feeling sympathy for Harper outside Alberta.  Under Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s  harsh leadership style  the price of oil has  dropped by 57 per cent since last June,  hydraulic fracking has  become commercially viable in the U.S undercutting the demand for Canadian oil and gas, and  nine years after Prime Minister Stephen Harper took power Alberta’s liquid gold, Tar Sands is  landlocked. Pipeline building  in Canada has become  a major problem . Harper falsely showed overt favouritism toward Alberta. His government subsidized the oilsands while dismissing Ontario’s efforts to develop green energy. He treated central Canada’s manufacturing woes as an unfortunate, but unpreventable, byproduct of globalization. His ministers hunted down employment insurance recipients in the job-scarce Maritimes to ensure they were actively looking for work. He changed Canada’s equalization formula when Ontario became a have-not province. he chose his style of leadership. He picked his tactics. He assumed the goodwill of the people was expendable   http://www.thestar.com/opinion/commentary/2015/01/08/events_conspire_against_canadas_22nd_prime_minister_goar.html

The majority of the police forces, RCMP included,  for the last 50 years in Canada have failed to catch the majority of real criminals cause they are either trying to make criminals out of ordinary persons or cause they are too busy investigating the ordinary honest citizens.. Welcome to the new world today where our own governments are watching us, no one is safe when they invade our privacy..  The USA spies on Germany, Canada, the world While Germany spies on the USA. Then they now also  claim that Russia is a totalitarian state where everybody gets watched all the time which shows the hypocrisy of the West. Canada,  Germany and the USA too. Innocent citizens have also been caught up in a dragnet style surveillance problem called PRISM, even when the communication has nothing to do with terrorism or crime!

  1. Russian Orthodox Easter has been celebrated throughout Russia and at tens of thousands of churches across the world. Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill led the Easter service at the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in Moscow. For Russian Orthodox Christians, Easter is their main religious celebration. Several thousands of people attended the service including Russian President Vladimir Putin, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and his wife Svetlana, and the Mayor of Moscow Sergei Sobyanin. http://www.euronews.com/2014/04/20/russian-presidentvladimirputin-attends-easter-service/ , all while Canada’s Prime Minister’s Stephen Harper Christian family celebrates Easter, having a drunken orgy? An intoxicated 18-year-old woman was taken to hospital early Sunday morning, Easter Morning, after she was found on the driveway at 24 Sussex Dr. The RCMP say paramedics were called to the prime minister’s official residence on the weekend in response to a medical call. The call came in the “early morning hours” of Sunday, April 20. So the woman had been attending a party at 24 Sussex that night? Report says underage woman treated for potential alcohol poisoning.The Prime Minister Stephen Harper had professed to be an evangelical Christian, and evangelical Christians they do not serve or drink Alcohol.. but Harper does.. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2014/04/23/what-at-prime-minister-stephen-harpers-residence/

  2. According to the Business Barometer report released by Canadian Federation of Independent Business, eight provinces saw drops in business confidence, including drops in Canada’s largest petroleum producing provinces, Saskatchewan, Newfoundland and Labrador. In addition, Civeo’s workforce reduction and location closures have reinforced business owners’ apprehension in these parts of the country. Civeo, a Houston based oilfield service provider, who provides long-term and temporary housing for its Canadian workers, has announced reduction in capital expenditures over the course of 2015. It is evident that lower prices will result in the shut down of unprofitable oilfields. Fewer oil sands construction or expansion projects reduce the demand for labour and accommodations. The uncertainty around the magnitude and duration of reduced oil prices is prompting Canadian policy-makers and the corporate world to revisit their annual budgets and respond to this unanticipated economic reality http://www.businessreviewcanada.ca/finance/1155/The-Bad-the-Good-and-Other-Effects-of-Declining-Oil-Prices-for-Canada
