I was pleased to see the latest Senate report on security identified a need to spend our tax dollars on coast line security rather than military excursions round the world.
We need theclass 4 icebreakers they recommend to protect Canada's interests in our arctic. Unless we have a 4 season capacity to enforce our sovereignty others will take advantage of the North West Passage which could lead to an ecological disaster. The Harper Government is silent on this which gives the Liberals an opportunity to articulate a comprehensive security policy for our north.
