Abstract
The paper studies two major themes in Canada-United States relations - northern defence and resource sharing. It has examined attitudes, assumptions, and perceptions, emanating primarily from the close ties between the two countries during World War II, and how these continued into the post-war era. The investigation concludes that Canada's military options were limited by this relationship, and suggests that, more often than not, Canadian northern defence policy was based primarily on political and economic factors than on military considerations. This also held true in the development of Canadian-American resource policy which too often cloaked private economic concerns in the guise of joint security interests.
