Title

If Asked to Peacekeep, Reluctant Canada has No Option

Description

Ottawa, Ontario

Desbarats discusses the difficult position Canada was in regarding its decision about whether or not to participate in the Viet Nam War. If Canada were to refuse to peacekeep, it would tarnish its reputation as peacekeepers. Similarly, if Canada refused to play a role in the conflict, it risked straining relations with the United States, which were already uneasy due to recent, US imposed, economic policies.
