How on earth was the border drawn? It has a very odd shape. And what about the tiny land border with Newfoundland and Labrador on Killiniq Island? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 12:36, 15 April 2013 (UTC)
The Chemetco link in the see also section should perhaps be explained somewhere. Until I clicked through and searched for Nunavut I had not idea what the reference was for. Perhaps it can directly link to the sub-section, e.g. Chemetco - Air-borne dioxin production? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tmyroadctfig (talk • contribs) 02:12, 4 May 2013 (UTC)
Done. This matter seems to warrant a whole section, since the Chemetco page quotes a report that says "Nunavut is especially vulnerable to the long-range air transport of dioxin." Sminthopsis84 (talk) 12:52, 4 May 2013 (UTC)
Cold War, dubious statement re "launch warheads"
This section claims that, re Cornwallis and Ellesmere Islands,
"These islands were prime candidates for the Soviet Union to launch warheads from. "
What, the Russians were going to invade Arctic Canada to install ICBM bases?? Needs to be fixed. By dim memory of a Farley Mowat screed, this displacement had to do with installing DEW Line radar stations? Help? --Pete Tillman (talk) 18:22, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
There were no DEW line stations on Ellesmere or Cornwallis Islands, according to the map at File:Map of Distant Early Warning (DEW) Line.jpg. As for Soviet missle attack from that area, there might have been some concern about Soviet Navy ballistic missle submarines coming up through the ice around the Canadian Arctic islands, but that seems equally likely (or unlikely) around any of the many islands; I couldn't guess why Ellesmere and Cornwallis would be special.
