Subject: North Pole? Already taken
Re Ottawa Seeks To Strengthen Claim To North Pole (Dec. 6): It’s all well and good that Canada seeks to solidify its claim to the North Pole.
Unfortunately, however, that venue has been claimed for a long time by a jolly old man who spends 364 days on site. This is known as adverse possession.
Canada doesn’t stand a chance.
