Here is a story , that just didn't get enough coverage in Canada or the US.
though Canada and the US have cooperated previously on other occasions, the need for a formalized agreements, was never an issue.
So it leads one to ask, a number of questions......
Why didn't Prime Minister Harper or his gov announce it? Why did it only get leaked to the press through the actions of a citizens group?
Did Canadians in their democracy vote to have foreign troops on home soil?
Did the Americans in their democracy vote for foreign troops on home soil?
Aren't foreign troops on someone else's soil generally invaders? occupiers?
North American Union here we come?!
The integration of the use of the two militaries on each others soil could indicate that?
Or is it simply that the american soldiers not being our countrymen would have less of a qualm about shooting a canadian and vise versa?
Is this a way to get around POSSE COMITATUS?
What exactly constitutes an emergency?
Canada and the U.S. have signed an agreement that paves the way for the militaries from either nation to send troops across each other's borders during an emergency, but some are questioning why the Harper government has kept silent on the deal.
