back off, eh?

Newly-elected Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper told the US to back off on claims that Arctic waters including the Northwest Passage are international waters. Harper re-asserted Canadian sovereignty over those waters in his first press conference since being elected Monday.

And to think the opposing Liberal Party ran attack ads accusing Harper of being a pro-American, Bush-loving toadie. So much for being a pro-American PM, eh?
