ABSTRACT
The article discusses the three potential localized strategic subcultures including pacifism or anti-militarism in Quebec, Anglo-Saxonism in English-Canada and continentalism in Alberta. It mentions that these subcultures suggest internal contentions of the national strategic culture. Some statistical hypotheses derived from these disputes regarding the nature of the subcultures including the use of force as a means of last resort and multilateralism are also discussed.
