U.S. won’t defend Canada during North Korean missile attack.




Current U.S. policy directs the American military not to defend Canada if it is targeted in a ballistic missile attack, says the top Canadian officer at the North American Aerospace Defence Command.

Lt.-Gen. Pierre St-Amand, deputy commander of Colorado-based Norad said,””We’re being told in Colorado Springs that the extant U.S. policy is not to defend Canada.”

Canada’s House of Commons defence committee is currently studying the North Korean threat and Canada’s abilities to defend itself and its allies in the event of an attack.
