Since Confederation Canada’s policies regarding war have always been as a follower; a follower of Mother Britain (Boer War, WWI, WWII), a follower of the United States (Avro Arrow, Bomarc Missile) and a follower of the United Nations (Korea, Cyprus, Rwanda, Balkans…).
During those times it did not join the US in battle—Vietnam and the second Gulf War—it had been because such actions were not sanctioned by the UN.
The current conflict in Ukraine only demonstrates, once again, that Canada does not have a foreign policy which benefits Canadians. Rather, its position is crafted to ingratiate itself to its betters in the United Nations.
In this discussion, Professor Salim Mansur explains that Canada has been living in a globalist fog which prevents it from asserting its own best interests in foreign affairs and from having a “Canada First” foreign policy. Worse, as a “post-national state” without a “core identity” as Justin Trudeau has described Canada, it has no concept of what its national interests even are.
