The US was defending it's arms building and exporting business. The Arrow would have made Canada a major arms exporter as customers were lined up to buy the first fly-by-wire Mach 3+ interceptor. Even as the program was shut down, other countries were offering to buy the project and prototypes from us but we cut them into scrap and burned the designs. This stuff is pretty well known and extensively written about.
