Abstract
The December 1987 INF treaty marks a turning point in the history of East-West relations. The INF treaty revived the great transatlantic debates on the future of defence. The authors foresee the continuation of Atlantic co-operation and the simultaneous pursuit, with varying degrees of commitment, of three visions of Europe: a transatlantic Europe; an enhanced Europe and diminished NATO; and a renewed Europe. With respect to regional disarmament in Europe, Canada could have a role to play in both the verification and the restructuring of its forces on the Continent. The authors believe that if European co-operation becomes more substantial, the need for Canada to keep troops in Europe will be even more pressing, politically speaking, than it is today.
