Sample text

After World War ii , because of existing rail, airport, and military infrastructure, Fort Churchill became an important Canadian-US joint military testing facility. The focus was first on cold-weather warfare testing and training, then short-range surface-to-air missile testing, and, from 1954 to 1964, upper-atmosphere rocket research, driven in large part by the problem of designing ballistic missile guidance systems capable of dealing with the geomagnetic and auroral influences of the upper atmosphere over the Arctic.

The non-military participants, in particular, would now have a clear sense of the degree to which Canada depended on US military power and spending for the defence of North America and Canadian interests elsewhere. A series of comparisons between conventionally armed Bomarc missiles and nuclear-tipped icbm s, recycled and aging Voodoo fighter aircraft37 and the newer American F-4 Phantom jet, norad activities at North Bay and at Cheyenne Mountain, and Canadian and US military programs in the Canadian North would leave no doubt that Canada was a policy ‘taker’ with very limited capacity to influence the development of defence policy for the continent.

8 The first of Warren Langford’s photographs was taken at rcaf Station North Bay, where the group visited the newly acquired CF-101B Voodoo interceptors of the Royal Canadian Air Force’s 414 Squadron and the Bomarc-B anti-aircraft missiles of the 446 sam Squadron (fig. 5). By 1962 both the Voodoo fighter and the Bomarc, under the control of the commander-in-chief of norad, had become symbols of Canada’s ambivalent engagement in the air defence of the continent. Throughout the Cold War, Canada was under constant pressure from the United States to be a more proactive partner in the defence of North America from air attacks by the Soviet Union.
