Canada's Sovereignty in the Arctic Islands

CIM Bulletin, 1969

W. H. PATTERSON, Calgary, Alberta

As FORMER PRESIDENT and founder of Trans-Western Oils Ltd. (N.P.L.), a British Columbia company which moved its head office to Calgary and recently merged into Acroll Oil & Gas Ltd., and Trans-Western having had interests in extensive acreage in the Canadian Arctic Islands, I have, since 1958, made a study of matters relevant to those interests. I have visited a number of the Islands and flown over many of them so as to familiarize myself with the area.
