The Royal Canadian Navy, your navy, is now in worse condition than it ever was under any other government since before the 2nd World War.
Today the RCN announced that HMCS Iroquois is so badly rusted out and so dangerous to sail that it may never return to service.
That leaves the RCN with one, that's right, one serviceable destroyer. The RCN has one, that's right, one replenishment ship.
What that means is that the RCN is able to put ONE under-strength task group to sea in the event of a crisis, whether military or humanitarian. In a country bordered by three oceans, we have to choose ONE and hope it's a correct guess.
The RCN is conducting patrols with clapped-out, continually useless Maritime Coastal Defence Vessels, the likes of which don't even have a useable gunnery system and present a useless sick-bay.
So much for the myth perpetuated by the Harper government that the Conservatives are all about defending Canada. You'd have to go back to 1936 to find Canada's navy in such a deplorable state.
Harper lied to you and he lied to the armed services.
