Arctic Sovereignty? Canada Owes it to Joseph-Elzéar Bernier: a New Biography Tells How, Why, When and Much More



    MONTREAL, Sept. 1 /CNW Telbec/ - Captain Joseph-Elzéar Bernier and his
crew claimed the entire Arctic Archipelago for Canada exactly 100 years ago in
1909. Canada's greatest navigator dreamed of conquering the North Pole, but
his crowning achievement was no less than to establish his country's Arctic
boundaries. Without Bernier, the geopolitical configuration of the North might
be different today.
    JOSEPH-ELZEAR BERNIER, CHAMPION OF CANADIAN ARCTIC SOVEREIGNTY,
Marjolaine Saint-Pierre's excellent biography of the Quebec explorer, is now
available in English, translated by Arctic expert William Barr and published
by Baraka Books and the Arctic Institute of North America of the University of
Calgary: 372 pages; 200 illustrations. Information: www.barakabooks.com. Press
copies, interviews available.
