The Paradoxian Guard was a private military force created by the Canadian Paradox Party on the recommendation of Tom Hagen. The main purpose of the force was to help bolster Canada's defenses on the occasion of either invasion or annexation by a foreign power. The Guard worked in conjunction with the Canadian Armed Forces in securing regions and by initiating Resistance Wars.
With the ongoing French Wars casting a shadow over the country, and with doubts of the capabilities of the CAF to adequately defend Canada, Tom Hagen put forth a recommendation to the CPP Council to create a military force which would provide both wellness and support for those Paradoxians who chose to train and to improve their military prowess. Following this recommendation and a Council discussion, the approval to create this force was granted and on the 23 March 2009, the force became into existence with the name of The Paradoxian Guard.
