I understand that Russia and Canada have agreed to abide by the mapping currently being done of the underwater continental shelf in the Arctic as to who ends up owning what. As far as the US is concerned, it is attempting to have the northwest passage which cuts right through the middle of Canada laterally, designated as an international waterway.

I'm using this website for school studies, and, being Canadian myself, I think it has lots of very accurate and well-written information. It was a huge help.
