Time for CAF base closures? There was a paper on that …
Call me crazy for thinking we should have a bit of a recent, clear idea of what we want the CAF to do before figuring out how much CAF we need, and where.

Here’s the final list the experts came up with – closer to the top = most worth keeping open for a range of factors (REMEMBER, THIS IS A LIST DEVELOPED BY EXPERTS IN 2010, AND DOESN’T REPRESENT ANY FINAL DECISION OR LIST):
Also, LOADS of backstory/discussion from then – and now – here at Army.ca (DISCLOSURE: I’m a moderator there).
