Re: CFB Esquimalt axes popular Blue Boat ferry service, News, March 14, 2012.
The decision to cut the Blue Boat service is beyond idiotic, especially as a service that transports staff to the job site while cutting down on emissions of unnecessary motor vehicle usage, not to mention reducing congestion to the Colwood crawl. A reduced schedule makes more sense.
Military leaders are facing budget challenges backed by minimal strategic guidance, including shrinking resources armed with aging fiscal education that often fails to meet basic readiness standards.
Our political leaders ought to use the defense budget axe first on senior officers who clearly can’t truly grasp the consequences of their decisions.
