Well interesting little msm report over the weekend-
Space may be the first frontier for the next major conflict
And Canada has a role to play, as subordinate and in coordination with the US.
It won’t look like a scene from Star Wars, but the man in charge of space development for the defence department predicts the initial steps of the next major conflict are more than likely to start in orbit and Canada should be prepared.Of course the claim that this is necessary because China is trying to deny the advantage frankly to the West.
There will “absolutely” be more of a military role for Canada in space than in the past, Col. Andre Dupuis said on Saturday as he discussed the defence department’s plans to overhaul its space defence policy.
The defence department’s new space defence policy is almost complete and has reached the highest levels for final review, he said.
Dupuis told the conference the policy “recognizes space as an operational environment” and provides guidance on how to exploit it in support of Canadian Forces operations.
I'll quote the man entirely-
What he says underhandedly in that sentence is that the west already has the advantage. China is trying to play catch-up. The new arms race!
Dupuis says the satellite destruction by the Chinese was a clear indication the Chinese are planning ways to conduct operations in space.
“Not space warfare, but operations in space to deny the advantage frankly to the West,” he said.
And right up the alley of big brother is watching...
Another panelist, Doug Bancroft, director-general of the Canada Centre for Remote Sensing, part of National Resources Canada, said the only effective way to monitor the country is from space.
Monitor the country? Sufficiently vague. Does he really mean monitor the citizens? The movement of ? The activity of ? What?
First I have hear of this Canada Centre for Remote Sensing, so check it out.
