Canada has changed – grown larger – since Confederation. Indeed, its maritime areas continue to be enlarged. Prior to World War 2, a State’s maritime jurisdiction stopped at 3 nautical miles from the coast, but since then jurisdiction has expanded – sometimes as far as 350 nautical miles, or even farther.
David Gray will outline how this has happened, and show Canada’s geographical extent. He will also show where Canada has unresolved boundaries with its neighbours and describe some of the court cases involving illegal foreign fishing.
