    Future Helicopters

    Why not buy the Griffin or the Bell 412 EP as it known to the Coast Guard. I would feel a little better with more lift, range, and internal space when going North.

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    I would do some reach out to Membertou in Sydney. The Nephew of the Chief obtained his Law degree at Dalhousie and spent five years practicing on Bay Street but came home with a brand new plan. He convinced the Chief , his uncle that it was time to modernize the bands practices to...

    Replacing the Subs

    I defer to your superior knowledge . Perhaps a future adult Administration could offer to split crew the Four American boats in Portsmouth N.H. They seem to be the closest Squadron to Canadian waters in the East.

    Replacing the Subs

    Woulda couda shouda but IF Canada had proceeded to buy the Nuke Subs back in the nineties I could have seen then based at Port Hawkesbury or on the mainland side in the Canso straight.

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    I believe Chretien was the P.M. that designated an indigenous component for Defence contracts with the Sea King replacement project. I live just a few KM's away from that manifestation when I drive by the General Dynamics building in Cole Harbour. A local Mic Mac reserve are the landlords. Mr...

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    Most governments will see the AD, ATGM and other Army gear as inside Army baseball if you will. They know enough that they DON'T know what any of those acronym's are and would wave their arms at NDHQ and say "what is this ?" Why should I care?". The Field Army's greatest obstacle is the...

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    The National Shipbuilding program I thought was an attempt to do just that and much to my surprise the Trudeau NDP coalition Government have not killed it. Is it too expensive , yes, taking too long , yes but it IS producing. It is a truly National commitment to build a combined 65-70 Ship...

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    I would agree that Politicians are well Politicians but Harper did leave the Forces capabilities in better shape than any Liberal ever has since at least St Laurent. The Leopards, TAPV's, LAV 6's, Mack Trucks and Navistar trucks were all under Harpers government. He also added 25 M-777 guns to...

    Opportunity to update the CC-150 fleet?

    Clarkson took entitlement to a new level as did her husband who insisted on being called his excellency. Despite his writing record. I remember the Tour Ms Clarkson took of the Arctic Countries . With about 150 of her closest friends that happened to all reside in Toronto.

    Opportunity to update the CC-150 fleet?

    That scenario would have the majority of the Company walking. Is it time for Canada to ask our American friends to sell us some Fiscal year 2010-2015 slightly used C-17's to supplement our Fleet? I will take three at least please. Would the Yanks be open to that suggestion? Minister Anand I...

    GBAD - The return of 'FOBS'

    No one alive today has felt that loss but Halifax most certainly has experienced the devastation of War if indirectly back in 1917. Please remember in todays scale if the Halifax explosion happened to the present day GTA. That would amount to 198,000 dead and 800,000 permanently blinded, or...
