On August 4, 2006 the Toronto Star's headline screamed out "Canada's Afghan sacrifice: Death toll rises to 24 as 4 soldiers killed, 10 injured in Canada's bloodiest day so far".

Canada has contributed much more to recent U.S.-led war efforts than can be found in the headlines. With Canadian taxpayers paying more than $1 billion for these initiatives, shouldn't the government inform the public?

To read more details on Canada's covert military involvement, please read this brief article

I'm pretty sure most informed Canadians, and those that take an interest in where their taxes are going know what is going on. Too many people stick their heads in the sand and then when they find out after the fact scream about it.

NASA launched the Canadian observation satellite in 1995. Since then the American government has controlled 15 percent of RADARSAT-1's observation time. Furthermore, the U.S. has full access to all archived RADARSAT data more than 6 months old.

American federal agencies also pay extra subscription fees like the US$3.4 million paid in late July for RADARSAT-1 data to monitor locations around the world for 12 months.

from that same article

Not one-sixth of all of our satellite time! Oh noes, whatever shall we do?

Here's how this breaks down from my persepective. Firstly, the Forces get the lion's share (85%)of the satellite time for things like preventing Canadian deaths. Secondly, we're making money back off the damn things. thirdly, we actually don't have to whine and beg for intelligence, we've got our own.

This is what we call 'sensationalism'. Yes, Canadian assets have helped the American's war on terror. But not nearly so much as you claim, nor want people to believe. As far as my tax monies go, saving Canadian lives is definitely something worth spending them on.

Saving Canadian lives also constitutes not putting them in blatant exposure to harm as is the case of our servicemen employed in this baseless wars overseas.
