OTTAWA (CP) - Canada's announcement that it won't join the U.S. missile shield provoked an immediate warning that it has relinquished sovereignty over its airspace.
From now on, the U.S. government will control any decision to fire at incoming missiles over Canadian territory, declared the top U.S. envoy to Canada.
"We will deploy. We will defend North America," said Paul Cellucci, the U.S. ambassador to Canada.
And you wonder what is wrong with the Canadian government?
"We simply cannot understand why Canada would in effect give up its sovereignty - its seat at the table - to decide what to do about a missile that might be coming towards Canada."
"I personally don't think it's in Canada's sovereign interest to be outside of the room when a decision is made about a missile that might be incoming towards Canada."
I agree. But if Canada (which had a great military force until the liberals came to power) are not going to defend themselves and contribute to the defense of the continent, then they have effectively given up all rights to protect themselves. No offence to Canadians, but if your government continues in this direction, they are going to be known as the "Great Dumb North" instead of the Great White North. It has nothing to do with keeping themselves "distinct" from the U.S. This is security of a continent and if they continue at this pace, pretty soon you might have U.S. troops defending Canadian borders. Hopefully, Canadian bloggers such as The Black Kettle can pull them to their senses. Selah!
