CANADIAN DEEP SEA SHIPPING POLICY AND THE MERCHANT MARINE ISSUE
Canada is one of the few maritime nations in the world which has no national deep sea fleet. Possible development of one has been a contentious subject ever since the government sanctioned the transfer of Canadian ships to foreign registry in 1949. This paper outlines the history of Canadian shipping and examines the merchant marine question by analysis of options open to Canada in the light of recent world shipping trends. Emphasis is placed on the economics and politics of liner shipping rather than tankers, bulk carriers and tramps. The paper gives qualified approval for a flexible "mini-fleet" consisting of 2-3 container-ships.
