The Pros And Cons Of Canadian Peacekeeping

I think that Canada should try to retain its peacekeeping role. In the past years, Canada has been putting a lot more money and resources into fighting the war in Afghanistan, while they could have been investing in peacekeeping missions (Shephard). Canada should decrease its involvement in violent missions and increase their involvement in peacekeeping missions. They have participated in both in the past (Dyck 207). However, recently, under the leadership of the Harper government, they have primarily been engaging in violent missions (Harper). I believe that this was the case because Harper wanted to strengthen ties with the United States, and war was a common ground. Strong ties with the United States would allow for Canada to grow its economy.
