Abstract
The influence that the Canadian government obtains over international developments by virtue of the existence of the Canadian navy is primarily pertinent to issues of national security. Canadian security can most easily be threatened by the activity of her allies, and hence the purpose of Canadian armed forces is to reduce the need of her allies to dominate Canada, or to engage in military operations which could lead to nuclear war. The Canadian navy furthers these ends by protecting the integrity of the European and North American parts of NATO, and by undertaking those alliance defence tasks which if done by others would undermine Canadian sovereignty.
