    stating the obvious but that is one hell of a lot of people to keep supplied using rubber boats and bailey bridges

    Replacing the Subs

    We have no shortage of available areas within which to construct a secure base. Your problem would be getting people to actually move there

    Replacing the Subs

    didn't say we will I said we should. Sadly, I agree with your comments. It fits with the OW mentality. Patrol 9 to 5 Monday to Friday, weekends on the ground and never on a stat. holiday

    Replacing the Subs

    And in the meantime, a high priority should be to add, perhaps double the number of ASW aircraft that we have patrolling. We originally had 33 Argus built. Granted they were slow but they had the ability to remain on station for a very long time and could cover one entire coast of Canada on a...

    if they succeeded in hitting the flight line this one will be a game changer. Nothing in occupied UKRAINE is out of reach which will require them to relocate their fleet as well. logistics just got a whole lot more complicated.

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    I have to say this carefully to avoid or at least deflect in-coming but at least two of the reasons deal with sex and Quebec. She represents an important riding and her credentials are great academically. According to her biography though she has never had a real job for any length of time but...

    Replacing the Subs

    So you buy the first products off-shore. That means you are paying to establish an assembly process somewhere else for the first tranche and then paying again to do the same thing on-shore. Or maybe you keep the run going off-shore to equip the fleet but then you are never going to develop...

    Can't do that 'cause the train don't run here anymore. I do hope though that he is using the challengers more than the Polaris

    Liberal Minority Government 2021 - ????

    I wouldn't consider Warren capable of providing an unbiased view. My best guess is that they will either support their local person or simply abstain. Singh has already given them the motivation: why vote at all when your party is only going to side with the libs anyway

    Ukraine - Superthread

    the lessor of two evils maybe? Add in superb PR and very poor optics, I mean obliterating schools, shopping malls and hospitals and then denying it doesn't work at all. As for ethnic cleansing, I believe that Stalin started that in Ukraine which is the only reason why there are a plethora of...

    and the rest of the world stands by and watches, wrings their hands and murmur "isn't it terrible". What a pathetic collection of cowards we have for leaders

    New Canadian Shipbuilding Strategy

    not to mention funding several skills building courses in metallurgy, welding etc. Its a win-win for those kids lucky enough to obtain a position and there are a number of first nation people who can look forward to a decent career

    Too true. Read Jordan Peterson in the National Post either today or yesterday for confirmation of that and where it is leading us. I'd copy it in but I only have an unattributed copy.

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    Don't forget Nordair operated them from graveled runways through the addition of a deflectors on the nose gear. They were a little noisy though when the odd stone would ping off the lower fuselage

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    They are only fooling themselves. Our allies haven't taken anything we promise as truth for a long long time.

    CMMA - replacing the CP140 Aurora

    sorta makes sense. They are far enough from any potential airborne threat that any attack would come from carrier based forces and a ground based artillery network would easily negate that threat. They aren't likely to initiate any offensive actions on their own but would work in concert with...
