The US and Canada by the nature of geography and our historical relations are intertwined when it comes to defence policy. Much like XMAS dinner when the family gets together we do have our periods of not getting along, but if Canada was attacked the US would come to its defence without hesatation and vice versa.
That being said, Canada as a nation should not abdicate its sovernity by "outsourcing"" its defence to the USA or any other nation. Its simply not good national policy.
If and when there is a massive hydrocarbon war, it would be nice to be able to mount more than a cursory defence of your resources eh?
