Not move the units there, but to provide a centralized facility to house those capabilities that can't easily be managed in the individual armouries. Shared vehicles and maintenance facilities, indoor ranges and other training facilities (obstacle course, climbing wall, urban warfare training centre, larger classroom facilities, etc.). The airfield could have housed a Reserve helicopter unit. It could have been used by the Federal Government as a storage facility for humanitarian aid and disaster response equipment and supplies.Yes, but for example, Toronto already has a bunch of armouries (and HMCS York) which the Reserve units already use. Would it have been better to keep CFB Downsview, move those units there, and get rid of Moss Park, Fort York, etc?
