The Vietnam War was the resistance against the forces of America, and is the only war America lost.With America’s goal of liberating communism in South Vietnam, Canada’s aid was necessary, but refused to cooperate and this weakened the relationship substantially. America’s, Free World Military Forces organized by the U.S President, Lyndon Johnson, comprised of different countries annihilate North Vietnam, the communist. Canada was apart of the International Control Commission created by the Geneva Conference, in 1954. They were allies of the North and South Vietnam to reach a mutual consensus by providing support to the adjacent countries. Being a peacekeeper, Canada refused to assist the U.S and help their enemy. Due to this, the relationship eventually became strained. More than 30,000 Americans immigrated to Canada to avoid fighting in the Vietnam War, otherwise they are sent to jail. America relied on violence being the reason why Canada did not partake in the war, impairing their relationship.
