    Wow,

    You can almost SMELL the american ingnorance in these answers.

    Canada is an Independant Sovereign Nation. We do not answer to the United Kingdom anymore than the US does. We do not have nuclear weapons because we do not need them.

    Though, to tweak your minds with an actual fact... Canada was a major producer of the plutonium used in the American's Manhattan project.

    As for the ignorant swine who claimed that Canadians have never done "dirty work"...

    You are a disgrace. Canadians have been involved in almost every major international conflict since their confederation. That includes both world wars, and the Korean war, FROM THE START... they didn't wait for the fight to come to them. Even now, the Canadian Army is playing a leading role in Afghanistan. Taking casualties. Because of a shitload of American lies.

    I don't have a problem with most americans. In fact, I think that generally they are intelligent well meaning people. But they have the unfortunate problem of having to let the most ignorant and disgusting amongst them talk and speak their mind, ruining it for the rest of them. I sympathize with the intelligent American. I pity the ignorant.

    1. It doesn't need any. Hasn't anyone here learned anything from the cold war?

    2. It has plenty of uranium mines and it probably knows the basic concepts of constructing a simple nuclear weapon and has the technology to fire it. It doesn't want to waste time and energy to develop it, that is, until its neighbor from the south decides to turn against it when its resources are depleted.

    They have big sister to the south for protection so there is no need- no one will mess with Canada knowing that the US will step on to defend her and the US won't be attacking so Canada is safe on all sides

    Canada doesn't need them. If anyone EVER attacked Canada, the U.S. would turn their sands into glass.

    Why would they. If Canada needs nuclear response they simply pick up the phone and ask for George or John, or who ever happens to be the occupant of the White House !

    The don't need them. Canada lets the United States spend the money and blood to protect Canadian borders.

      Not true. Canada fights along side the USA. They both shed blood.

    They don't need them. We are their protection. We are not going to let anyone invade them, it would threaten our security. They and Mexico get a free pass when it comes to national security.

    Yep.

    Because they are Afraid of France.

    France Will Not Allow Canada to have Nukes.

      Are you stupid?? France is WAYYY less powerful than Canada. Canada does not have to obey France. Canada could destroy France. Canada does have nukes technically, however they are American. France is **** and will always be **** and Canada could destroy them with one jet.

    They dont have the budget for it and dont see any reason to invest in nuclear weapons. Also, as a supporter of the non-proliferation treaty, they cannot legally develop them. Additionally, they are a member of the United Kindgom, which is a nuclear superpower.

      Canada is not part of the U.K. Also, the U.K. is not a nuclear powerhouse, they have like 3 nuclear weapons. The U.K. is **** and so are you
