[] Canada Opts Out of American Plan to Defend Continent,

The Canadian government has announced that, for the moment, it will not join
the U.S.-led North American defence plan and will remain responsible for its
own defence. U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld announced yesterday the
creation of a new military zone stretching from the Canadian Arctic to
southern Mexico. Senior Canadian and U.S. military officials have been
putting pressure on the Canadian government to join the "Northern Command".
Foreign Affairs Minister Bill Graham, however, has suggested that Canada
could join at a later date and that Ottawa is content, for now, to limit its
role in continental defence to NORAD. (Source: Globe and Mail, 18 April
