    Canada is between the US and China/Soviets/ Korea, so why would Canada want to be too emphatic about supporting the US missile program? Canada maintains her own autonomy and power by saying no to missiles. Does she want to be the No mans land with the US taking over as She did during WWII? Is it possible that the US might be an aggressor? Sometimes it’s wise to resist the arms twisting.
