More than half Canada’s Navy vessels are either being repaired, modernized or otherwise at reduced readiness

This is an embarrassment given that Canada is (in theory) a naval nation. We have no serious land-borders to defend and are largely unable to project any significant force abroad via our navies. Such force projection needn’t be in the service of aggressive or ‘peacekeeping’ missions: simply being able to guard major shipping lanes is something that Canada is increasingly ill-suited to contribute to. Decades of failed procurement process have led to an embarrassing state of affairs, and one unlikely to improve anytime in the near future.
