I have several quibbles with aspects of some of their proposals (which readers of this blog should readily appreciate, e.g. concerning the F-35–lots more here–and the Royal Canadian Navy–lots more on the RCN here); but I think the simple reality is that no Canadian government, including the Conservative one, will have any interest in seriously working towards the aspirations the authors’ recommend. Much less the great majority of people in this democracy who appear to be resolutely fatalities-averse amongst other things and also suckers for defence Jobs! Jobs! Jobs! political bribery.
Moreover, unlike say Aussies, Canadians do not think they live in a potentially dangerous neighbourhood and thus need to be militarily prepared. Finally I would highlight that both Canadian politicians and major media effectively have zero inclination to take defence matters substantively rather than for show of one sort or another (cf. this pitiful current Conservative pledge about special forces involving peanuts spent over seven years). Woe Canada.
