    Canadian Federal Election 44 - Sep 2021

    So in very simple terms, it doesn't matter to you if the economy goes to hell in a hand basket, your neighbour is unemployed and the breadline extends clear around the block as long as we have reached this decision via consensus. Wow

    lockstep indeed, just like lemmings heading for the cliff. All a tax does is cost the taxpayer. It doesn't do a damn thing to reduce emissions. To do that requires either ceasing production or finding a more efficient way to use the fuel we have now because except for hydro, none of the...

    Return of the CL-84? Swiss company looks to build modern version

    They are looking at a hybrid electric version rather than either piston or turbine. EVTOL.com had an article out a couple of months ago. Although it didn't mention a Canadian factory it did pay tribute to the CL84

    lots of indigenous in Minnesota but not quite so much money to fund their protests. But I sure hope you are right re: 2022 for Trans. It certainly hasn't been easy to date.

    Good deal but it was built in Minnesota not Canada. It was proposed in 2015 and completed 4 months ago. On the other hand, the transmountain request started processing in 2013 and is still years from completion. Kittimat is still being blocked and if you want to ship oil from Alberta to...

    the 5 parties are chasing votes not solutions. We are being played for suckers by those who see a buck to be earned.

    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    My mind seems to recall the Brits using alternative ships to transport harriers to the Falklands but if it is the sensor suite you wish to deploy why not equip a cyclone sized helicopter and use it as a node to coordinate fleet operations without the need for a carrier?

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    As an outside and retired observer for many years I would suggest the one thing you don't want is more civilian oversight. The process of hiring in the civil service, which is where the oversight will originate, does not look for the best person for the task at hand. Senior positions are...

    Victoria is facing a public-safety crisis

    Seriously, if covid restrictions were cancelled and people were allowed to return to normal living would this result in fewer incidents of rage? I wonder because it dominates conversation, it dominates the news and it absolutely controls behaviour.

    What percentage candidates? It is the voters who decided on those percentages that you quote. more realistic comparison would be the number of candidates that each party ran.

    Australian navy's hunt for new sub to replace Collins class

    Assuming that the first nuclear boat for the Australians is produced offshore can either the Brits or the Yanks increase production rate to accommodate an Australian purchase without throwing a wrench into their own procurement schedule?

    Cosmic impact found on ancient city

    Or, in spite of all our sophistication and greater insight because we are oh so much more advanced then they were, we are wrong and the story that you mock is correct. It isn't just the Mesopotamian, there are several dozen 'flood histories' found in people groups from all continents. Only...

    basic homes are few and far between. Developers don't offer a basic package within the construct itself and they don't offer a smaller construct when they market a new development. Consequently, many folks are shut out. Even condos and towns have 65,000 dollar kitchens when IKEA can supply...
