This article examines the nature of Canadian-U.S. relations. There is an assumption that Canada is growing more dependent on the U.S. However, the U.S. cares less and less what Canada does because it has a declining interest in the territory for its defenses in a missile age. In their continental partnership there are always forces driving the U.S. and Canada together and apart. The forces differentiating them may be more conducive to harmony than those which draw them too close for comfortable management. The two countries have been military allies, but a problem about alliances is that even if they have outlived their usefulness, the act of dissolving them seems hostile.
