Devils Advocate time: could or would Canada do as well/anything if a MegaMaga inspired military invasion to sieze oilfields or water resources occurred? A similar scenario existed for Ukraine/Russia from 1991 to 2014.Don't know about the Ukrainian Territorials - currently they seem motivated to supply full time labour. The Danish Territorials the commitment is unpaid and entirely voluntary. They learn as much as they like when they like and do what they like depending on the qualifications they have achieved. It is a large force that like most voluntary organizations "normally" only contributes a few members to operations. But the Ukrainians are demonstrating what the potential of such an organization is when the population is motivated.
And I agree, it is much more like the Canadian Rangers terms of service than the Reserves/Militia.
