The SORT debate: implications for Canada. This study concludes that Canada should support the American ballistic missile defence (BMD) because it would secure NORAD?s position and benefit the Canadian Forces. The author also argues that Canada?s involvement in missile defence reinforces its commitment to jointly protect and secure North America. ?Participating in missile defence would further demonstrate to our anxious neighbour and closest trading partner that Canada is serious about continental security,? says Philippe Lagassé.
