Cold War, dubious statement re "launch warheads"[edit]

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.  Unician   19:38, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

"Archaeological findings"[edit]

It seems rather odd that the only entry under the title "Archaeological findings" refers to (not universally accepted) finds of presumed early European material. Nunavut is rich in native archaeological sites ranging from early Pre-Dorset to Late Thule/historical Inuit. Why are none of these mentioned?--Death Bredon (talk) 22:11, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
