  • Do you have any insight as to who was responsible for and why the 3 reg force regiments were reduced to nil strength (guards, QOR and Black Watch Watch). I have read the history and realize those units were selected in the 1950s mostly to meet NATO commitments.

    If you have a minute of 50, would love to hear if and what you know of why and the whats happened. Thanks
    Rick.

    Now, rumour ~ but a rumour from a source I believe is (was, actually, dead now) 100% reliable and was totally "in the know:" Pierre Trudeau actually proposed, to his cabinet (early in 1969?) to totally disband the Canadian Armed Forces and make Canada a neutral national ~ a sort of large, cold, Costa Rica.

    Rumour (cont) He had his reasons, but he was told that he would face a cabinet revolt which would, 95% certainty, cost him his job as PM and his political career. His minister knew that a neutral disarmed Canada would in m months. not years, become nothing more than a US protectorate.

    Hope that helps.
