    Warship rejected by DND years ago will now be the backbone of Canada's future navy

    The defence department noted that the Type 26 design could be modified for Canadian needs but concluded the 'technical and programme risk would be high'

    Welcome to Canadian style corruption. The Liberal party, especially trudeaus are very well connected to Irvings. The results were decided before they decided they needed ships.

    Decision making goes like this:
    1) Irving guys want to make money
    2) let's build some ships
    3) let's get the government to pay for it
    4) create a bid tailored to Irving so no one else can win.

    Canada Is Officially Trying To Buy Germany's Unwanted And Unflyable RQ-4E Euro Hawk Drone http://thedrive.com/the-war-zone/26...-unwanted-and-unflyable-rq-4e-euro-hawk-drone
    :

    "The North Atlantic military alliance has ordered its own fleet of five Global Hawks, under what is known as the Alliance Ground Surveillance (AGS) program."

    I've heard of yet another AGS, the component of some US-naval game-changer

    Canada's fighter jet tender competition (finally) takes off next month

    Attempts to replace 3-decade-old CF-18s began in 2010, but have been mired in politics

    If you thought that is bad enough:
    Canada changes fighter jet rules to allow F-35 bid

    or https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/fighter-jet-rule-change-1.5130470


    Worse than joke is SHAME: it only means Canada tax payers will keep paying extortion of US MIC.

    No, whats worse than that is Canada failing to do their part to defend their own Nation after committing to be a full partner in F-35 production. Thats what you ought to be ashamed of!
