The Frigates have been getting love previous to this announcement with the FELIX program. A less cynical take would be, now that the design for our next generation of ships has been selected, these new maintenance contracts are to ensure the Halifax are servicable until the type 26 are ready.

why waste the money though if it’s hopeless as you say? that’s a lot of money to pretend we have something.

Is have to guess crew morale and retention/recruitment of forces requires at least some upgrading of the vessels.

The running joke out of CFB Esquimalt now is that Felix, the refurbished mostly civilian crewed(!) supply vessel has better on board communications equipment than do the warships.

Know it all.

Not sure I'd give the Libs that much credit.....
