In Committee from the Senate of Canada - National Defence - April 28, 2014 - Part 1


The committee continues its study on the status of Canada’s international security and defence relations, specifically focusing on the possibility of participating in the U.S’s ballistic missile defence program.
The first panel has National Defence and the Canadian Armed Forces’ Major-General Michael Day briefing the Senators on the Canadian Forces’ reliance on space capabilities, which include global communication, GPS, maritime domain awareness, and more.
The second panel includes (appearing as individuals) Michaela Dodge, Heritage Foundation; Lauren van den Berg (Foreign Policy Consultant); and Richard Weitz, Hudson Institute. The policy analysts discuss the reasons why Canada would be interested in pursuing missile defence and provide a cost-benefit analysis of different defence options.
The third panel features former chief of the defence staff Walt Natynczyk (president of the Canadian Space Agency - CSA), and his colleague Luc Brûlé (vice-president). The witnesses speak on the role of the CSA in maintaining Canada’s interest in space. (April 28, 2014)
