RUSI(NS)-NORAD & USNORTHCOM – Distinguished Speakers 26 January 2022 – Arctic Maritime Security

The Royal United Services Institute of Nova Scotia and the North American Aerospace Defense Command and United States Northern Command (NORAD and USNORTHCOM) extend an invitation to presentations Wednesday, 26 January 2022, by Captain Alan McCabe, Chief of Response, District 17, United States Coast Guard; and Commander Corey Gleason, Royal Canadian Navy, first Commanding Officer, HMCS Harry DeWolf.  The topic of their presentations is “Arctic Maritime Security: US Coast Guard and Canadian Navy Operations.”  Their bios are attached.

The Arctic is reemerging as a growing theatre of strategic competition from both Russia and China.  The Arctic region is an ‘avenue of approach’ to North America for air, space, maritime, and land threats – directly over the pole ‘in and through’ Canada.  The United States Coast Guard and Canadian Navy are the ‘First Line of Defence’ with their proven Arctic maritime response capabilities, provide credible deterrence, and conduct joint operations to counter new and emerging threats to the North American Arctic.

The talk will start at 1 pm Halifax time, Wednesday, 26 January, then be followed by Q&A and finish by 3 pm Halifax time.
