No offense, but we(Canada) belong to the Crown of England.


I'm aware. But Canada is autonomous nonetheless.


Canada belongs to the Crown of Canada...but they're only Canadians, you can't expect them to understand such a complicated arrangement!






We may suffer from delusional sovereignty syndrome if anything.


Just revolt...What could go wrong?


Aren't they revolting enough already??








Watch this, the first thing that will happen when Quebec separates is the Atlantic Provinces being bought out by the US LOL


Nah, too cold.


The firs thing ghat will happen when Quebec Separates is that everyone else in Canada will be greatly relieved - it will be the biggest mass dump in history, and the place will stink even more!!

Well...Since Canada doesn't have a Nuclear Weapons Programme, but do safe house a few American Nuclear Bombs from what I've heard, who else are we going to sell it to?

Canada does not have weapons of mass destruction on its soil anywhere. Not one.

That's completely untrue.

Canada has held WMD's for multiple countries since the cold war and maybe even before that friend.

Look it up, do some research.

This news is not surprising in the least.

Canada is one of the world's top producers of uranium. Harper has been establishing extensive US-CAN government relations. Even before Harper, even during the cold war days, this type of stuff would not be surprising. But of course it would never be on official papers since Canada is so nice and peace loving, right?

Canada has supposedly been in possession of US nukes from the Cold War days.

I don't know if it has ever been officially verified.

Although, the point is rather moot, Canada 'could' have operational nuclear weapons inside of a month. We have the technical expertise and enough enriched product at research facilities to do so.


This is very true, we have the centrifuges and process for more complex units, the laser trigger sources and if something had to whipped up as a party favour in a few days, a standard CM system coupled to reasonably high explosive for compression could be made very quickly. But we are Canada, "We're not like that dear LOL"

ETA: Forgot to mention, between 1985 and 1988, 27 kgs of enriched fuel went "missing" from Ontario Hydro reactors and South African counterintelligence knew about it. I confirmed this in a "bitching" session with Maurice Strong in 1990 and he was quite shocked to know that I knew about it, fell all over his words actually. He was going off about the Candu reactor in Chad and the hostage situation and how External Affairs in Canada wasn't worth s**t and I told him about the cdn ambassador (External Affairs) in South Africa and how he was in my opinion and from experience a criminal. Common ground open mouths ;-)

They'll probably roll right through my border town late at night one of these days with the shipment, no one would suspect a thing.

I want our Prime Minister, Nazi, Fascist Traitor, who is determined to destroy everything our country stands for behind bars, and I'd prefer to see him and Obama sharing a cell. They probably miss each other every time they part, and we can't have that can we?

Canada shipping bomb-grade uranium to U.S.


ca.news.yahoo.com

MONTREAL - Weapons-grade uranium is quietly being transported within Canada, and into the United States, in shipments the country's nuclear watchdog wants to keep cloaked in secrecy.

A confidential federal memo obtained through the Access to Information Act says at least one payload of spent, U.S.-origin highly enriched uranium fuel has already been moved stateside under a new Canada-U.S. deal.

As if this was a big deal. Canada and the U.S. are the closest Strategic Partners on the face of the planet and reguardless of other allies such as the U.K. or others....an attack on Canada is considered to be an attack on the U.S.

I have MANY Canadian friends and I always kid them with....How's it feel to be the 51st State? But this is not far from the truth. The population of Canada is small and has been dependent upon the U.S. for protection but the people of the United States would give it gladly!

There are MASSIVE U.S. Military instalations in Canada....HUGE! Just about ever person in New England...where I live has a Canadian family member. The two countries are Blood Brothers. And whether some Canadians like this or not...the two countries will ALWAYS be Military Partners. If you asked anyone in the U.S. what they would do if Canada was ever threatened....they would all say...DEFEND HER!

So...realize what the ties are and how deep the blood relation goes before judging this action. Split Infinity

Yep. I'd like us to fire up a couple of new reactors for medical grade isotopes too.

Oh wait - I am a supposed to be horrified? I just want them to be careful, reasonable x 10.

Canada & Australia are practically made of Uranium ore.

US has the tech but not the raw materials.

Been going on for years.

Nothing new here, move along.

This is heresay evidence, perhaps...

...but back in the late seventies I asked my brother in law (who was then with the Canadian Air Force and based in Comox, B.C.) if Canada had any nukes.

He did one of those double looks over his shoulder (we were on a golf course on the Island at the time), and then he told me that yes we do...but he did not offer much in the way of detail. He did say quite seriously that I shouldn't repeat this information to anybody, because officially they are not there.

At the time, the Canadian Air Force would scramble fighters out of Comox to meet and "escort" Soviet bombers as they were doing their practice runs toward North America. The inference was that we could see them coming from a long way off, and with what we were carrying they would never actually get anywhere near striking distance of Canada or the U.S.

Like I say, a little second-hand, but this guy was pretty much a straight shooter. He was some kind of a sheet metal worker, so would not likely have a access to a lot of operational info...but I am sure he and his buddies could see what was going on around them on base.

Not entirely sure why this is so shocking..

Take a drive through downtown Vancouver and you'll notice odd street signs saying "This is a nuclear weapon-free zone". Funny how a country that isn't supposed to have any nuclear weapons at all has to put up signs like that.

The US and Canada have a long history, and we (the public) are only privy to fractions of it. To say that Canada is as boring as we make ourselves look is quite silly, especially when you look at things like JTF-2 and Project Magnet.

Anyway, yeah, we're shipping spent fuel to the US. Big deal. Would your rather we sell it to a less trustworthy nation, or throw it in drums and bury it in the land our ad campaigns love to call the best in the world?

Of course we have had nukes. We were armed with nuclear-tipped Bomarcs designed to decimate entire Soviet bomber fleets.

As for modern times? I wouldn't put it past the Canadian government. Think about it: We're the second largest geopolitical landmass in the entire world. We wouldn't have maintained this if we didn't have the right cards to play. I'm sure that we have black projects just like any other leading industrial-military power. Not everything we do is under the obsessive eye of the Americans, mainly because at some point the US is a separate nation and obviously can be deemed our enemy, even by our current regime, if the circumstances scream it.

When I consider Canada on this matter, I like to think of the concept of storing your gun in one safe, and the trigger in the second safe. What's a gun without a trigger?

Component A, slots into Component B.

Conveniently, we also don't technically own either Component A or Component B.

I love politics.

Canada has always been supplying USA with uranium for bombs, this is not news to me.
The fact that BC flat refuses to test milk for radioactivity is.

Shania Twain, Celine Dion, Nickleback, Justin Beiber and now this.

You pesky Canadians have got a lot to answer for...

It's a good job you guys gave us William Shatner, otherwise the only cure would be to nuke the lot of you from orbit.
