The Canadian Armed Forces are shrinking. Defence Minister Bill Blair yesterday said more soldiers, sailors and air crew are quitting than can be replaced with new recruits amid “a great deal of priorities right now” with war in Israel and Ukraine and domestic search and rescue operations.

“There is a real challenge in the Canadian Armed Forces,” Blair said in Senate Question Period. “Over the last three years we’ve actually seen greater attrition, more people leaving the Forces than the Canadian Armed Forces has been able to recruit.”
