Canada Under U.S. Military Umbrella
On 14 February 2011 in Texas, Canada and the US signed an agreement that allows the way for the military from either nation to send troops across each other’s borders during an emergency. Interestingly, both the Canadian government and the Canadian forces did not make the announcement regarding this agreement. Why? Does this mean Canada has fallen under the American military umbrella?
