UAE tries to blackmail Canada, Tories stand strong

"Canada refused to grant more landing rights to two state-run airlines from the United Arab Emirates because the UAE tried to "blackmail" it into doing so by using access to a key Dubai military base as a bargaining chip, Conservative sources told CBC News."

"The Canadian Forces have been kicked out of a strategic base that supports operations in Afghanistan after a dispute with the United Arab Emirates over Canadian airport landing slots."

"A military source in Ottawa says the United Arab Emirates closed its airspace Monday to Canadian Defence Minister Peter MacKay and Chief of the Defense Staff Gen. Walt Natynczyk in an escalating diplomatic row over aviation rights."
