Canada is absolutely not immune to the impending world wide economic collapse. This nation is presently suffering from an economic slowdown, increasing debt load, and rising unemployment. Yet in spite of the tough times that Canada is experiencing, it seems, according to this article from www.vivelecanada.ca, that the Canadian Minister of Defense, Peter McKay, is squandering Canadian taxpayer dollars during these hard times by purchasing war toys that may prove to be totally inappropriate for our present or future needs! Here is that article:
Minister Of Defense Peter MacKay Squanders Taxpayer Dollars In Hard TimesPosted on Monday, September 27 at 09:20 by robertjb
NTS Notes: I fully agree with the assessments made in this article. Yes, the present F-18A Hornets that Canada had purchased during the 1980's may be obsolete by today's standards. But to move to the absolutely outrageously priced F35 aircraft is definitely squandering Canadian taxpayer dollars when the more fiscally responsible and proven Super Hornets are readily available, and at a far less expensive cost!
It does same strange that the Canadian government is willing to pay BILLIONS of much needed taxpayer dollars on these overpriced machines considering that the Cold War is over, and there is absolutely no such thing as a "terrorist" threat from the CIA/Mossad created phony "Al-Qaeda". The questions then becomes to Canadians... Why is our government squandering our money, and exactly who is our own government listening to?
