Asked what he thought about the issue [of who owns the North Pole], Liberal Party leader (and presumed future Canadian Prime Minister) Justin Trudeau shrugged that he’d leave it for “scientists” and “experts” to decide, and added that he didn’t want to turn it into a tawdry “political” matter.
Wow, what inspiring leadership! And hey, what could be less “political” than… the borders of your own country?
Shipping lanes? Defensive military outposts? Oil and gas revenues? Whatever!
And never mind international law or history or even folklore. “Science” is the only guide you need to everything! It’s never wrong!
