Americans: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the North to avoid a collision.
Canadians: Recommend you divert YOUR course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.
Americans: This is the Captain of a US Navy ship. I say again divert YOUR course.
Canadians: No, I say again, you divert YOUR course.
Americans: This is the aircraft carrier USS Lincoln, the second largest ship in the United States' Atlantic fleet, we are accompanied by three destroyers, three cruisers, and numerous support vessels. I demand that you change your course 15 degrees North, that is one five degrees north, or counter-measures will be undertaken to ensure the safety of this ship.
