"It's obvious they don't have money for fuel or personnel," Nova Scotia NDP MP Peter Stoffer said.
Stoffer called it "very disappointing" that the navy ships are tied up, and said Canadians should be alarmed.
"Not having these ships patrol leaves a big hole in our security," he said. "You can have illegal immigrants, drug traffickers, people who want to do us harm or harm our neighbours.
"The Americans have consistently accused Canada of having leaky security measures, and this will just prove to them that we are not even patrolling our own coasts for security measures."
