135) As you may know, the United States has invited some countries to participate in what is referred to as its "Star Wars" plan. The concept (formally known as Strategic Defense Initiative) involves establishing an anti-missle defense system in space. The system would be in place by the 1990s. Washington currently has a $26 billion background research project underway. In your opinion, should Canada endorse the project and participate financially, endorse the project but not participate financially, neither endorse the project nor participate financially, not only not participate but strongly oppose the plan, or do you have no strong feelings either way?
