Bravo, Paul Martin.

Canada and the US have a strong trade relationship. Canada and the US share the longest undefended border in the world. And Canada and the US disagree on missile defence.

I can appreciate that it is perhaps a little shady for Canada to sit back and watch while the US launches anti-nuclear weapons missiles that serve to protect both the US and Canada.

But the concept is simple: if we want the world to stop building nuclear weapons, then we all must stop building them. That goes for the US, too.

It doesn't make sense to preach an anti-missile program while at the same time preparing a missile defenses against more missiles.

As Gandhi once said, "an eye for an eye leaves us both blind."

So... bravo, Paul Martin, for saying 'no' to missile defense.
