It could not of been a sudden thing but a result of Britain utilizing Canadian Navy to supplement its own ships in the Caribbean during WW1. At end of war a decision is made due to high British debt accumulated during war that the Caribbean colonies be jointly administered and protected by the Canadians. There would of been opposition especially by politicians from Quebec but slowly over the next decade greater interaction and even greater movement of people between Canada and British Caribbean occurs. British still looked at everyone outside the British Isles as colonials. If a Canadian presence provides a direct benefit to both the Canadians (Pride and trade) and investment and markets for the Caribbean islands it could of worked. Racial issues would of existed but I believe that all the colonies were under the control of British Europeans at the time and Africans and East Indians
While I am discussing the political side I am interested in Naval and military side. Even trying to give Canada a reason to keep its Air Craft Carriers after WWII.
That sounds a more reasonable, I’ll look into it. We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it I’ll just say I’m looking to improve the RCN quite a deal in the interwar period.
