I agree with Lorne Gunter. The recent grit history seems to be one of trying to destroy our military. No wonder General Hillier called the 90's a decade of darkness for the military. We need working subs and thats what the Royal canadian Navy should have.

Boy did the Brits ever see us coming in 1998 when the Chretien Liberals pulled up to Honest Nigel’s Used Submarine Shop looking to buy four underwater patrol boats. The quartet they sold us for the unbelievably low price of just $750 million have been up on blocks in our front yard almost ever since, with weeds growing out the portholes. I expect Canadian Pickers to come along anytime now and offer us $2,000 for the set, take it or leave it.
