This former soldier is calling for base closures and other trimming of the fat of the CAF.

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.

That said, the pack-rat in me remembered a study done a while back on what bases were considered most important.

Behold — “A Prioritization Methodology to Support Investment Decisions at Major Defence Infrastructure Sites”, (78 page PDF, via Dropbox.com) dated November 2010.

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).

Download, peruse & enjoy!
