    Arguably one of Canada’s greatest contributions to WW2 was our production of the CanPat trucks.

    “Amateurs talk strategy; professionals talk logistics” was the quote from Gen. Omar Bradley IIRC, and I imagine in any conflict we become embroiled in (or wish to dissuade someone else from becoming embroiled in) we can contribute greatly to the logistics side.

    I’d like to see a Canadian version of the US’ Army Corps of Engineers. Right now, it could help with natural disasters, and could also help with infrastructure projects. In a conflict, they could prove invaluable in actually getting fuel and supplies to the conflict zone.

    Coastal patrol and Arctic patrol are two other areas where I think Canada has to stand alone to some extent.
