Canada's participation in the Manhattan project was critical since the country was one of only two places outside Nazi-controlled Europe -- the other was the Belgian Congo -- with known natural deposits of uranium.

Though Canada was one of the first countries to sign the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty in July 1968, the country has come under fire for providing India with the reactor India used to produce the plutonium that fueled its first nuclear bomb explosion in 1974.

Nevertheless, in the realm of international affairs, Canada maintained a pattern of “following a greater power’s lead.” In 1939, explained Bothwell, Canada’s forces were content to follow the lead of the British and fight under British command.
Bothwell contended that Canada’s refusal to abide by the wishes of its allies in these instances was symbolic of the country’s expectations of its alliance with Britain and the United States formed during the Second World War that subsequently carried over to the post-war era.
Whereas St. Laurent proclaimed that Canada must be ready to act in collaboration with its allies for the welfare of the North American continent or be “resigned to ineffectiveness,” Trudeau was much more inclined to question the wisdom of Canada’s allies’ foreign policy initiatives and decisions related to external affairs, said Doran.

 Manitoba History: Review: Witness Against War: Pacifism in Canada 1900-1945
The book begins with a discussion of the two traditions that formed the basis of pacifism in Canada: the tradition of historic nonresistance and non-participation in the state of such groups as the Mennonites and Hutterites, and the tradition of liberal pacifism of such groups as the Quakers and later the Protestant social radicals.
Of all the Protestant churches, it was the United Church of Canada which was most profoundly affected by pacifism and it was this issue which ultimately divided this denomination.
The “historic peace churches” in Canada will find their witness against war confirmed by Socknat’s book, but there is no reason for them to boast about their more or less consistent position.
