Summary
Despite being Canada's most vital defence relationship, little attention has been paid to the significance of the array of changes that have taken place in continental defence since the end of the Cold War. In examining the elements and process of change that transformed the North American defence relationship from marginal bilateralism to binationalism from the late 1930s to the establishment of NORAD in 1957-58, this analysis of post-Cold War changes in the relationship identifies and assesses two schools of thought: an optimistic status quo; and pessimistic revisionist one. While both implicitly agree that the binational Cold War relationship was primarily a functional response to the aerospace threat posed by the Soviet Union, they fundamentally disagree on the implications of changes which have occurred in the wake of the demise of the Soviet threat. The optimistic school of interpretation suggests that these changes are a basic functional response to the new post-Cold War defence environment, and have had little effect on fundamentals and Canadian strategic interests. The pessimistic interpretation posits that these changes reflect a significant divergence in perceptions between Canada and the U.S. about continental defence, and are transforming the relationship through the process of re-nationalization with negative effects on Canadian strategic interests. Although only time will tell if the relationship is actually transforming, the analysis concludes by positing that prudence should be the guide for Canadian decisionmakers
