Without any discussion with the public or even in Parliament, the Trudeau Liberal government issued a “Joint Statement on NORAD Modernization” with the U.S. Biden administration on August 14. NORAD, now known as the North American Aerospace Defense Command, puts the Canadian military under the control of USNORTHCOM of the U.S. armed forces. NORAD, along with NATO, integrates Canada into the U.S. war economy and strategy to wage endless wars for global hegemony. It brings Canadian forces under the command of the president of the United States.
The joint statement was issued on the eve of the Trudeau government’s launch of the pandemic election. It represents a warmongering outlook and program unacceptable to the majority of Canadians who want Canada to be a force for peace in the world. This is why the Trudeau government must say all its warmongering foreign relations are for peace, security and in the national interest. It is not so. Like the Biden administration, the Trudeau government also contends that no relations among the peoples of the world can be developed peacefully on the basis of mutual benefit and interest as one humanity.

“The stronger and safer we are at home, the more we are capable of engaging and acting together in the wider world, in support of a strong, rules-based international order” and in “maintaining North America as a secure base for active engagement around the world.”
The “strong, rules-based international order” led by the U.S. and the “active engagement around the world” are exposed in practice as warmongering with the violent attacks against the peoples of the world such as the ruination of Afghanistan and the chaos, famine and anarchy the U.S., Canada and others have left behind after twenty years of war, and with the U.S.-led destruction of Iraq, Libya, Palestine, Syria, Lebanon and others throughout the world and arms sales and support for Saudi Arabia which has destroyed Yemen.
