Excellent.... the Information Ops campaign is working.

If they invade, we won't have to wear stupid things like 'War of 1812' pins, or put up with purveyors of the 'Militia Myth' anymore :)

I’m presently in Vancouver. It’s much warmer than Ottawa right now. The idea has merit.

I'll make the case for Winnipeg - its central location in Canada, the diverse seasons we have and the diversity of our population. Plus the politicians hot air will heat us up in the winter, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions.  :stirpot:

The location bit may have sucked the RCAF into making it its HQ, but I'm sure the federal govt is much smarter than that  ;)

RCAF HQ is in Ottawa...
