Canada has apparently decided that it still needs a navy.  The RCN is apparently going to buy 15 frigates.  I half expected that when reading the article I was going to find that they were buying ex-USN WWI 4 stackers. (Only Jim Bates will get that joke.)

It may eventually happen.  India seems to be moving away from Russia and China and more toward the US.  This is good news for them and us.
