According to this video the answer is no. America wanted to invade Iraq to help secure oil assets and to prove that they were “big and strong” after 9/11.

This supports my reading from The Shock Doctrine where America weaponizes natural disasters to push capitalist ideas on the public.

While the US and Britain are highlighted in the video above, I don’t think that Canada wasn’t aware of what was going on and just went along with the US to be a good neighbour.
