Consider what would have been saved, and how many RCN/CCG vessels of various sorts, might be operational today if we had just contracted abroad.
There are pros and cons to building overseas or building in Canada.  It appears that the Conservatives and the Liberals have both decided that it is best to build in Canada.  Building surface combatants for Canada overseas is not an option.

I would like to highlight how remarkable it is that at least part of our defenc policy (shipbuilding) is bi-partisan.

That sometimes happens when GDP is in play (and not Gross Foreign Production...) :nod:
