    Canada and the United States are both member nations in the United Nations, which acts as arbitrator between all nations when there are conflicts or disputes. Each member nation gets to vote on how world problems will be addressed and whether the UN (and its members) will be involved in problem resolution efforts. Each member can abstain, or they can vote (as occurred for the "No-Fly Zone" Resolution that was passed to prevent Libya's current dictator Moammar Khaddafy (Qadafi) from following through on his public threat to kill the demonstrators requesting more say in their government. One might be able to draw the conclusion that your country's representation in the UN keeps the Canadian citizens safer in the long run by eliminating problems before they get out of hand on a global scale. In unity there is strength, after all.
