Senate Report post 9 May17

New Senate Report Released

The Standing Senate Committee on National Security and Defence has released a new report, Reinvesting in the Canadian Armed Forces: A Plan for the Future. This follows the report that was released in November 2016, entitled UN Deployment: Prioritizing Commitments at Home and Abroad, and a report released in April 2017, Military Unfunded: The Talk Must Match the Walk. Reinvesting in the Canadian Armed Forces lays out a roadmap on how the government can address the strategic challenges confronting Canada and the Canadian Armed Forces. In addition to the external forces, it considers the complexity and extent of the challenges that a country like Canada faces – the size of the territory, coastline, economy and population, and the implications of these on defence requirements. It’s interesting reading. See the report at
