Well, this is embarassing
Navy patrol can go ahead, O'Connor says

Canada's defence minister said Ottawa is giving the navy more money so it can go ahead with a patrol off the East Coast after concerns about funding had postponed the voyage.
Hmm, that's odd. Not so long ago, I seem to recall this:
"The United States defends its sovereignty, the Canadian government will defend our sovereignty," [some jackass] said.
So, Harper's plan to vigorously defend Canada's sovereignty was to bankrupt the navy. Um, I think I see a flaw in that. The most annoying thing about this whole situation is that it inevitably leads to this:
"The Americans have consistently accused Canada of having leaky security measures, and this will just prove to them that we are not even patrolling our own coasts for security measures."
Yeah, pretty much. Anyway, The Galloping Beaver has a more in-depth look at this story.
