warning: my impressions, maybe biased viewpoint One of the PM's first moves was to get over to Afghanistan, spend a few days on the ground with the units, find out the real problems, and give a speech about "we're here for the long haul and you've got our support", then get back and pbutt a bill (squawks from Liberals, but they can't afford to fight another election, now they're no longer in control of the trough) backing the expedition long term, and getting his Defence Minister to kiss butt. Looks like they're giving a real boost to the military by improving their pay and conditions so married grunts don't need to use the food banks, and allowing them to replace the planes and helicopters that fall out of the sky regularly, which the Liberals kept having to study.
snip Maybe it depends on what you mean by "how to deal with computers". I agree that it's unlikely that any student today would get to college without having some exposure...
They're also sending troops and ships patrolling and snooping up far north, and set up a northern patrol with Inuit, to enforce borders and boost Canadian sovereignty over arctic claims and the north west pbuttage: the Liberals were too woosey to drop depth charges to persuade trespbutters that pbutting through Canadian territory without asking permission or even notice was unacceptable. Suspect the USN might be a bit more polite the next time they want to take a short cut under the ice, or you might hear about it. And they might get a real surprise at the greeting if they poke their heads out. Tracking subs from ships is harder than sticking probes thru a hole in the ice.
