- Reaction score
How much of this was ever a real scenario in defence of Canada? Or was it a problem we invented so that we could exercise stand alone companies and say we were doing something under the "securing the homeland" mandate of our defence policy?Since 1946 the accepted standard unit of force for the defence of Canada has been the Company. And the target has been "SOF" types and small arms.
I have a hard time conceiving of such an attack that wouldn't have met its objectives long before our reaction forces could be brought to bear.
Let's face it. If this were a true threat, we would have long ago adopted the local territorial defence structures that you keep suggesting. But we haven't.
