Is Canada Navel-Gazing and Neglecting the Military?

By David Dunlop, 9 January 2023

A few months ago, the new French Ambassador to Canada, Michel Miraillet, made some comments that are interesting -- and frank (and which he said represented his own opinion). He suggested that "Caught up in navel-gazing and living under the protective shield of the United States, Canada has allowed its military presence worldwide to wither over the last decade or so." According to him, Canada has become complacent and relies too heavily on the United States for defence. It's an interesting comment to consider. Has Canada allowed its military presence worldwide to wither? An article by Tom Blackwell for the National Post summarizes the Ambassador's comments.
