#1 'Asserting' your sovereignty is one thing. Assuring it is quite another. Nations don't maintain their integrity by asking others to stay out.

#2 He's gotta break the US puppet look the Canadian left slammed on him. I wouldn’t sweat it, we may put on a small act like it’s a big deal and maybe at the end of the day we have to covertly let the Canucs know we are passing through.

The good part is if he can get the left to bite on "The single most important duty of the federal government is to protect and defend our national sovereignty," part it wont be much of a leap to make that “protect” part include BMD and early detection radars.

Not to mention we got Alaska a third of any pass so in the end if relations go south neither will get to play without the other’s permition of access.

#3 Bah: this is less a shot across our bow than the first vigorous shake of the Canadian Money Tree on behalf of a virtually non-existent military. We've been wishing for a Canada that punches above its weight militarily, and that won't happen until they get a military that gives us pause.

Any thing less wouldn't be worth piss in a pot.

Anything less would be positively FRENCH.

#4 welcome the same aggressive attitude in enforcing their immigration policies and *ahem* perhaps arming their law enforcement....

perhaps also in rescinding arms restrictions on the people?
