The Politics of Procurement: Military Acquisition in Canada and the Sea King Helicopter. Worth reading to understand how much Canada would benefit if its leaders confounded voters and actually took the high road. Throughout Canadian history, the story of defence procurement has more often than not been characterized by massive inefficiency and waste. Exactly why this should be so is rarely looked at outside specialist circles, which makes a brief and very readable book by Queen’s University political scientist Kim Richard Nossal worth noting. An engaging and interesting read.

Sea King helicopters' golden anniversary: 50 years of adventures, mishaps. Aaron Plamondon, a historian at Mount Royal University in Calgary, says the anniversary is a date that should concern Canadians because there is no replacement ready to take over for the aging aircraft. The helicopter purchase was announced in the fall of 1962, and the first aircraft - Sea Kings 4001 and 4002 - flew to Canadian Forces Base Shearwater on the outskirts of Halifax on Aug. 1, 1963. Gordon Gray, one of the first pilots, said he was awed by their capabilities.

Major military procurement has always been a fraught process, prone to delays and cost over-runs, not just here but around the world. But Canada’s decades-long record of botched purchasing is remarkable by any standard, from the disgraceful saga of its decrepit Sea King helicopter fleet to the ill-conceived purchase of four discount submarines from Britain. Sadly, a new low was reached last year when the procurement process appears to have been deliberately slowed for partisan political gain

Following its victory in the 1993 election, the first act of Jean Chretien’s Liberal Party was the cancellation of an order to replace the Sea King maritime helicopter. The Liberals claimed the Tory plan was too expensive, but the cancellation itself actually cost taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars. The incident and subsequent attempts to replace the Sea King have drawn public attention to inefficiency and waste in Canada’s defence spending and to the under-equipped state of its military.Seeking an explanation for this situation, Aaron Plamondon explores the history of the weapons procurement process since Confederation and describes the development of the navy’s helicopter capabilities and the acquisition of the Sea King. His account of the bungled attempts to procure the Sea King’s replacement reveals that partisan politics, rather than a clear desire to increase the military’s capabilities, has driven Canada’s military procurement process. As of 2009, it is still unknown when the Sea King’s replacement will arrive in Canada.A fascinating saga of politics playing havoc with military procurement, The Politics of Procurement is for anyone interested in Canadian military history, civil-military relations, or the roles of the government and the military in weapons acquisition.
