CF and navy must be prepared to fight for priority

For what it is worth, it seems that we are destined to have a number of years of minority government.  Sometimes that could be good; however, when the U.S. (and indeed world) economy is central and driving the political scene, one can expect government spending that is focussed on minimizing the effects of an inescapable recession (notwithstanding the joyous wails from Bay street today!)

The CF and the navy should prepare to fight for every bit of priority they can muster – it will be jobs, interest rates, and the deficit that will focus the government in the near term.
