    Should have stuck with f35 in the first place. Trudeau just wanted to stick it to the Conservatives, that why he changed in rules in the first place. Buying used f18s from Australia was the dumbest idea ever.

    You've hit the nail on the head Bub, this is a "little Justin, liberal temper tantrum", we've got about 25 "little Justin's running for President, that would plunge us right back into the Obama depression...

    I mean no doubt Australia is glad to see those birds bring some cash to help offset their F-35 purchase?? but even the Blue Angels are giving up on those "OLD BIRDS" and they have the best maintenance team on the planet.....

    First off, Canada is committed to open a competitive tenders in all major procurement. This can be viewed with the Auditor General's comments and direction after the F35 was initially selected for the Future Fighter replacement project (under the Harper government). The interim replacement was supposed to be the F-18E, however with the tariffs threatened to be levied against Bombardier, the current government canceled this project, and hence the requirement for the Aussie Hornets (C/Ds). This is the process within the Canadian Government, and some poor politics on both sides.

    The RCAF requires the 'old birds' to maintain Canada's NORAD, and international commitments until 2025 when IOC is expected.

    Obama's overseen 'economic depression', was largely the result of poor oversight during the W. Bush Administration. His management of the financial crisis whatever you think of it did result in stabilization and eventual recovery (that Trump has largely benefited from).

    I normally do not like to engage in political discussions because this is a military forum. What ever you have been inhaling please don't push those moronic progressives/liberals talking points in this forum. We don't live in an alternate universe unlike the Obama crowd.

    Competitive tenders like the one little Justin is giving his buddies for the frigates program? Or SNC? Or bombardier? No thanks.

    And f-35 is clearly not without competition when we are talking about "defenfing their nation". Because, well, geography.

    NATO commitments are another thing, of course... but, with time, "NATO commitments" are turning into Delian league more and more.
