Replacing all their .303 Lee-Enfields with new Sako T3 CTR rifles in .308 mainly for polar bears. Custom smithing by Colt Canada for oversized bolts, enlarged trigger guards and hi-viz laminated stocks with Rangers crest. Cost for the initial 125 rifles.. 1.5 million!  Shocked Yes, that just under $10,000.00 a rifle! Knowing the Canadian government, it'll be closer to 2.5 million sadly.  Roll Eyes They will eventually be ordering these for all 5000 Arctic Rangers.

All current Lee-Enfield rifles upon collection will be... Destroyed!  Embarrassed
