Editorial: It's time for Canada to get on board with missile defence
National Post
Any Canadians who may still doubt that the world remains a dangerous and unstable place, have plenty of regions to look to for proof. Terror groups are proliferating in Africa. Iraq seems set to slide into the same kind of civil war that still rages in Syria. Rockets are landing in Israel, China is flexing its muscles in the Pacific and even Eastern Europe has of late feared a return to large-scale armed conflict.

Canada has a second chance to make the right choice on missile defence
National Post
On Feb. 25, 2005, Canada announced in the House of Commons that it would not participate in the United States' ballistic missile defence (BMD) program. Canada's decision not to participate in BMD reportedly surprised and puzzled the United States. Up until that point, Canada had indicated an interest in participation and was already a de facto participant through its agreement that warning information collected under the auspices of the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) could be used in BMD.

70th anniversary of the founding of the RCAF's first three squadrons dedicated to air transport operations
RCAF

As the program was implemented in 1995, five decades after the end of the Second World War, it is unsurprising that those most deserving of recognition — those who gave their lives during the war... are least represented amongst the over 10,500 stones in the RCAF Memorial Air Park.
