Canada was really good at making nukes, and there were several times through history that we owned lots of different kinds of nuclear warheads. Although, most were held by US Air Force. Canada was the leader of nuclear tech regarding weapons after WW2. It was the canadian army that controlled a pile of Honest John Nukes in Germany in the late 60s aswell.

I think without canada, the USA would not be the nuclear superpower it is today.

Canada was also were the entire worlds supply of "heavy water" was dealt with.

Canada also stations american nukes until the mid 80s under a dual key policy, were both countries had to agree to press the red button.

The RCAF had the Bomarc which we received duriing the Diefenbaker government. Their indicisevness led to the election of Pearson who signed an agreement to allow the AIR-2A Genie missile. Though we technically would be "borrowing" it when it was needed. That way the government got around that problematic issue of aquiring nuclear weapons and political fall out if things went wrong.

The Avro CF-105 Arrow was nuclear capable as well.

Also part RCAF Goose Bay was leased to the USAF for a refueling point and staging area for SAC.

It should be noted that the RCN looked at nuke armed ASROC. As well as a Project Snow Flake- modifying the Tracker to carry the Lulu. A Mk 101 nuclear depth charge.

Amazing that 6 pages later, a factually incorrect post - essentially a lie - can continue to generate discussion, and no one is even tweaked that the image is not what it was purported to be.

Honestly I used to think it was kind of funny when the right uses its brand of very obvious viral marketing… and then I realized that it works.

Isn't this pretty much the same techniques used to sell us everything from Rice Krispies to Viagra? And the same thing we have seen for 20 plus years when we watch the evening news?

The sub hunters (Auroras?) out of Comox carried nuclear weapons. The weapons were eventually removed but all the hookups were left in place so that weapons could be flown back, installed, and up and running in a couple hours.
