Abstract

The author examines the legitimacy o Canada's participation in acts of non-defensive aggression in light of Canada 's international obligations and international law. He contends that in the domestic terrain, constitutional conventions, practices, and applicable laws as factors that shape Canada's decisions to participate in international conflicts, must also be critically reconsidered.
