At the CDDH, Canada stated:
The definition of indiscriminate attack contained in paragraph 4 of Article 46 [now Article 51of the 1977 Additional Protocol I] is not intended to mean that there are means of combat the use of which would constitute an indiscriminate attack in all circumstances. It is our view that this definition takes account of the circumstances, as evidenced by the examples listed in paragraph 5 to determine the legitimacy of the use of means of combat.
