We, Canadians, are, indeed, a “peace loving people.” In fact, in my experience, no one in their right mind likes wars, and I’ve met very, very few people who think that big, expensive armed forces are a “good” thing. But, Mill was right: there are worse things than war and believing that nothing is worth the fight is one of them. Canada is worth the fight, it is worth defending, it’s worth 2% of GDP.
