Sorry all of you, but it is Canadian airspace being threatened here by a huge margin. The Russians dispatched several bombers to test Canadian airspace, triggering a NORAD alert while all you were arguing whether sanctions would work. There was NO provocation from Canadian Forces. Russian fighters have also buzzed Canadian frigate patrolling the Arctic. And they have been able to penetrate Canadian air space....think about that.
So, you are right. Russia's the instigator.
Look, Americans may have bought all that bull**** about a new Russia and all that, but Canada hasn't and won't. We've lived too long between the two of you.
