I will agree with that, but then again, those missile defences will protect
my country too, or will they see Canada as an enemy for the amount of
hacking that routes through Canada.

Hmmm.  So, if a full-scale missile defense program is initiated, and
it incurs huge costs and long delays (a virtual certainty for a wide
variety of reasons,) then we can probably point to those "opponents of
missile defense" for having hacked into and sabotaged the source codes.
