One Ship Navy
So much for Arctic Sovereignty. Heck so much for costal patrols. The Conservative government has only one ship on active duty, the HMS Ottawa, now posted in the Persian Gulf. Thanks to the Afghanistan mission our Navy is in dry dock due to funding cuts.
Well the government had to pay for its war somehow, and it's at the expense of Canadian coastal patrols.
And this might be another reason that the Conservative Government Fisheries Minister was opposed to tougher laws against deep trawler fishing, we have no Navy to enforce those laws.
