Another Critique of the NSS

By Dr. Ann Griffiths, 27 July 2022

It’s been said before -- and it’ll be said again -- that the National Shipbuilding Strategy is not going well. There have been endless delays and massive cost increases. There was hope that once things got started, construction of the ships would proceed quickly. But the delays continue and the costs increase. What is the solution? That’s the $64,000 question. There’s a good discussion of the NSS in the July issue of Frontline Defence. It’s called “The National Shipbuilding Shambles” by Andrew Kendrick. In the final section of the article, Kendrick states “At the end of the day, we need to decide what level of premium we are prepared to pay for build-in-Canada solutions – 100%, 125%? I don’t believe that 300-500% is either reasonable or sustainable – nor is it responsible.” Check it out at
