In contrast to the common opinion that Canada's primary role has been peacekeeper in several historic disputes, this study sheds light on several dark corners of the country's foreign policy. From participation in the U.N. mission that killed Patrice Lumumba in the Congo to support for South African apartheid, Zionism, and the U.S. wars in Vietnam as well as Iraq and Afghanistan today, this investigation provides a comprehensive critique of how Canadian foreign policy is not independent but solidly linked with that of the United States. Revealing how the country has used its good reputation to open doors that have been inaccessible to the U.S., this analysis is a clarion call for Canadians to challenge their government's established procedures.
