Experts Say

Canada must keep watch as North Korea arms itself

Over the weekend North Korea conducted its most successful missile test to date. This is a threat not just to the region and the United States, but Canada as well. While the Hwasong-12 missile that was launched Sunday didn’t have the range to strike North America directly, the 800 kilometres it traveled eastward would be enough to strike the U.S. Anderson Air Force on the Pacific island of Guam. Plus a North Korean announcement threatened that they now have the ability to strike the North American mainland. This is almost definitely not true, but such a claim shouldn’t be laughed off.
