Canada Cuts Red Tape, Defence Moves Quicker

What they were talking about: Canada overhauls domestic defence.

What they said:

“[It will] allow us to react more quickly and more effectively to events across Canada, including the North,” — Defence Minister Bill Graham

“We are going to simplify that, move very much to a command-centric structure,— Although we have always treated defence and security … seriously, we have not done it in a manner that satisfies me, or the rest of the men and women in uniform or the civilians who support us,” — Chief of Defence Staff Gen. Rick Hillier

What they meant:

“What’s your assessment of this situation, Gunny?”

“It’s a cluster fuck, sir. Marines shouldn’t be sitting on their sorry asses filling out requisitions for equipment they should already have.”

“An astute observation.”
