I say Canada cant become a military superpower because they don't have the population to become one the usa has a large population allowing it to have a large military but don't get me wrong tech and training wise Canada is just slightly lower if not on par with the usa.

Canada can in fact become a military power. Maybe not now, but probably in the future. Russia became a military power, and it was not heavily populated. It is like Canada: cold and dependent on several resources to make their living in this world. Canada is one of the ten largest countries in the world, and I believe that Canada can become a military power. Maybe a new form of government may have to be established if this is to happen.

you are indeed right in the future Canada does have the possibility to become one I must agree but on terms of more recently I don't think they have what it takes yet because once again they don't have the population for it but if a large war involving Canada occurred maybe they might take extra steps and end up as a military power that being said a reason the wont become a military power is because they simply don't need or want to they have almost 0 wars to fight and thus don't need a strong military

I laughed when I read the title of this. It is idiotic. To be a military power you first need natural resources and manufacturing. Canada might have resources but is far from having the manufacturing capabilities.

This is a joke, right?

Canada could be a military place. The main soldiers would be Captain Falcon, Waluigi, and ProtonJon. (Jon is a Canadian YouTuber, and Captain Falcon and Waluigi are his mascots)

Suppose Canada did have the population. Their prime minister is too much of a you-know-what to build up a military because it might offend someone.
