  • Descrição: The article recounts the historical perspective of Canadian involvement and interaction in the North Atlantic collective treaty alliance and organization. The author discusses the mood and thinking of the policymakers shaping collective security from post WWII involvement and the Korea War to modernity. In following this dynamic the article focuses on the three factors key to Ottawa's security initiatives and timelines them in correlation to NATO involvement over the past sixty years. Included with this perspective, the author also discusses the Canadian nuclear and North American Air Defense (NORAD) matters and the links to Article 2 regarding political, economic, and social cooperation among signatories of the Alliance. Then the article focuses on arms reduction during the 1970s and growing push towards an economic link with Europe, bilateral defense issues with the U.S., and maintaining a military presence in Europe. However, since the end of the Cold War, Canada has played a significant role in security initiatives in the Balkan campaigns of the 1990s, Afghanistan and Iraq since 9/11, and other conflict zones for peacekeeping missions with generally no strategic influence. Still, the author states that Canadian leaders pledge support to allied missions and continue to respond, despite the consideration afforded by the alliance. The article then concludes with the author's views regarding Canada's future within NATO. Adapted from the source document.
