Canada's exemplary record as a steadfast advocate of global nuclear disarmament faces a moment of truth. A new deal to re-open global nuclear co-operation with India is nearing completion. Canada will soon be called upon to formally support exempting India from Nuclear Suppliers Group restrictions on nuclear trade with countries lacking "full-scope" International Atomic Energy Agency safeguards on all their nuclear facilities. Drawing on the recently released Canadian Policy on Nuclear Cooperation with India[link to web page], Huntley examines the dilemmas facing Canadian policy-makers and urges that encouraging global nuclear disarmament remain a basis for building future relations with India.
