As to needing your protection could you please tell me who is going to invade Canada?
I never claimed Canada was at risk of being invaded; you inferred that all by yourself. What I said was "peril".
Let's suppose you're in northern Ontario during fire season and need immediate evacuation:
July 22, 2011
OTTAWA - Since Wednesday evening, the Canadian Forces have evacuated over 500 more Canadians from northern Ontario communities, which continue to be threatened by wildfires. Five Canadian Forces CC-130 Hercules transport aircraft began flying at first light this morning from Winnipeg, Manitoba, picking up people from Sandy Lake, Kingfisher Lake and Deer Lake First Nations communities and delivering them to Thunder Bay, Ontario.
Or let's say you're in peril from flooding:Canadian military rush to Manitoba flood zone
At the height of the battle, over 8000 soldiers - one-tenth of the Canadian military - are on duty in the Manitoba flood zone. They come from all over - Canadian Forces Bases Petawawa, Kingston, Gagetown and Edmonton - to help in all sorts of ways. Engineers help the highways department. Other personnel build and patrol dikes and evacuate communities, police empty towns and provide medical assistance and, once it's all over, help thousands of people return home. CBC TV's Robert Enright was there to watch Canadian heroes at work.
Or your fishing boat is sinking:
One of the survivors of last week's fatal rescue mission near Igloolik, Nunavut, describes his rescuers as heroes.
"The one who came to us truly saved our lives, bailing water from the raft. We were helpless and he saved us," said David Aqqiaruq.
Back to foreign intervention. I don't agree with the idea that a government can do whatever it wants to the people living with the borders of a sovereign country.I believe that if civilians are being massacred by their government, that government is longer legitimate. I can't see any justification for shelling any unarmed civilians.
That also applies to Israel by the way, not only Syria.
