New armed Canadian Arctic vessel delayed

It seems that despite stressing the importance of asserting Canadian sovereignty over the Arctic by building new ships to patrol the Arctic & budgeting over Can$3-billion for it, the Harper government will have to delay the building of said vessels & some wags even doubt the controversial project will see the light of day. Now, it may or may not make sense for Canada to spend that much money in order to patrol such a vast extent & the government might be spending more wisely by investing in icebreakers while making sure Canadian commercial ships have free & safe passage. Sometimes we have to leave ideology behind & be realistic.
