Did that happen?

Did Harper stand up for Canadian sovereignty?
Canada requires ship registration in Arctic - Yahoo! News
Canada's prime minister moved to firm up control of disputed Arctic waters Wednesday by announcing stricter registration requirements for ships sailing in the Northwest Passage.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper said all ships sailing into the Canadian Arctic will be required to report to NORDREG, the Canadian Coast Guard agency that tracks vessels on such journeys. Such registration is currently voluntary.

Did Harper just stand up to the constant grandstanding of the US and Russia about OUR northern waters?
The more I read the article, the more I think he did. I'm looking for the weasel door he left himself to crawl out of.
Bets on how long before he goes to pieces and we get hit with shrapnel?
