The reason Canada has such a small military is they know if ANYONE tried to invade them the USA would be there in a flash. You may be a bunch of layed back, dope smoking lazy hippies but your the nicest darn neighbors we have.

Joint Army and Navy Basic War Plan -- Red. If you ask most people no one has heard of it, but the secret US plans to invade Canada have been on the US Military books for a number of years. Plan Red, is a step-by-step plan to invade, seize and annex Canada. It was drawn up and approved by the War Department in 1930, then updated in 1934 and 1935. It was eventually declassified in 1970 along with other secret documents and barely made any news.
First, we send a joint Army-Navy overseas force to capture the port city of Halifax, cutting the Canadians off from their British allies. Then we seize Canadian power plants near Niagara Falls, so they freeze in the dark. Then the U.S. Army invades on three fronts -- marching from Vermont to take Montreal and Quebec, charging out of North Dakota to grab the railroad center at Winnipeg, and storming out of the Midwest to capture the strategic nickel mines of Ontario. Meanwhile, the U.S. Navy seizes the Great Lakes and blockades Canada's Atlantic and Pacific ports.
It sounds like an old standing joke that you hear often from Americans, that they should just invade Canada and be done with it. Canada's rich abunbdance of Resources definatly seems like a good reason for most Americans but what they dont know is Canada also had a plan to invade the States.
As it turns out, Katz isn't the first Canadian to speculate on how to fight the U.S.A. In fact, Canadian military strategists developed a plan to invade the United States in 1921 -- nine years before their American counterparts created War Plan Red.
"His plan was to start sending people south quickly because surprise would be more important than preparation," said Floyd Rudmin, a Canadian psychology professor and author of "Bordering on Aggression: Evidence of U.S. Military Preparations Against Canada," a 1993 book about both nations' war plans. "At a certain point, he figured they'd be stopped and then retreat, blowing up bridges and tearing up railroad tracks to slow the Americans down."
Invasion Of Canada
Although these plans were drawn up in the 1920's its still gets the idea going that the US does have invasion plans on the books for most countries. It does seem likely that they would for just incase instances. Although the invasion of Canada is highly unlikly these days, how do you think the invasion might go if there was one. Do you think Canada would put up a defence considering the weather and other factors. Although most on this board are American what do you think might happen?
Invading Canada is an old American tradition. Invading Canada successfully is not

What are you talking about? We're ALREADY begging the Canadiens that are here to go home again. And take Celine with you.
