How Does Canada Go to War?
Short Answer is we don’t. Our army is primarily for self defence. For aid within our borders to our own citizens. Canada as a nation has never been a primary initiate of war with another nation. Nor been the primary target. As a nation, we’ve never had a war fought on our soil. Though there were wars fought here before we became a country.
Having said that, we are members of NATO, NORAD, UN, the Commonwealth and send troops to support their endeavours and engagements. We train with other nations on our soil and theirs.
Canada’s role with other nations is often one of diplomacy and sanctions when it gets involved with other countries’ disputes. We pick the side of our allies. We don’t technically have any enemies. But some of our allies do. We have no reason to be hostile.
