Perhaps because Canadian doesn't have a Heavy Bde - and hasn't since 4CMBG (which was getting old at that point and no longer a modern heavy Bde).NATO has already said what it wants from us, CAF has turned around and said okay, but we wanna have everything else too! thus is why we are moving towards a light, medium and heavy brigade when only one of those three has been requested by NATO. We canèt do everything but some capabilities need to have some assets, AD? low level sure, patriot batteries? no, NATO wants to turn us into a break through Force, a knife. the CAF wants to be the swiss army knife with half the tools are broken.
All the Heavy CDN Bde is there for is sharing casualties - not a knife but an anvil (at best)
Most countries built the force they want - and they tell NATO - hey, we can give you XYZ what do you want to do with it.
Canada for whatever reason seem to like to half ass things on both ends.
