    Base closures?

    The fact that Quebec elected all those NDP members. The provinces that elect MPs of the governing party are gonna get the spoils. The ones that don't get the cuts. Hence why all those NDP MPs from Quebec are worried. Sarcasm all you want, tis your right.. We shall have to see. Okay.. this...

    Base closures?

    Major bases? No.. but armouries and smaller stuff yes. Whatever's cheap to clean and can be sold for money. CFLRS would bring a big chunk of change cos it's riverfront property. CPCs are gonna look to punish Quebec. It may not be practical or make sense.. but it's politics. Politics rarely does..

    Base closures?

    I think the NDP is nervous cos it'll be Quebec's turn to bear the brunt of it this time. Everything in Ontario is safe.. Politics... politics..

    Family-friendly postings

      I grew up in Borden.. it was great. The tranquility of rural life with Barrie 20 mins away and Toronto 1.5 hours away. Best of both worlds. Alliston is even closer with everything you need.

    Question About Traffic Ticket On Base - "Fail to obey traffic sign - stop sign"

    Yes.. in order to activate that turn signal lever, they'd have to let go of their cell phones. Here in Ottawa there is only one rule of traffic.. 'Me first'. Everything else is optional.

    Who will be the new Minister for Veteran's Affairs?

    Keeping pledges involves spending the money to back them up.. so I vote for just hot air.

    Election 2011

    Initiatives for vets are great.. my father is one. But I'm positive that any money spent on these initiatives is going to come from cutting the CF budget. It won't be new money.
