This article discusses economic issues related to Canada. The far north has been slow in joining the modern world. Contemporary activity in the North, particularly in the North American Arctic, renews the concerted assault on the region that has until now always failed. There are many who believe that the present attack cannot but succeed because the economic need is now urgent and the technology required has been mastered. In administrative terms there are no simple and clear definitions of the North. Much of southwestern Alaska has a mild, maritime climate and is far from being Arctic. Relations between the U.S. and the Soviet Union were sufficiently strained to assume the likelihood of bomber and later missile attacks by the most direct courses across the polar seas. It is most improbable that Canada will regard any stepped-up economic activity in the North as an excuse for undertaking or allowing others to undertake new military adventures there. Fresh water is a renewable resource that is attracting increasing attention in the drier parts of North America where the supplies have been polluted or depleted.
