    Canadian Federal Election 44 - Sep 2021

    Oh, but there are. To wit: Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency - Canada.ca I prefer to describe it as equalization under another guise, as it seems to get lots of Maritimers to that magic number of weeks when EI kicks in. But then, I am from there, and despise what Maritimers have allowed...

    It won't be Canada that does the reckoning.

    Chinese Military,Political and Social Superthread

    It has gone beyond arrogance. This was prima facie that China does not care what other nations think of them, they will do what they want to achieve their strategic ends. There is a reckoning coming.

    I guess that the interpretation of "goodies" has changed in the last fifty years. I will never accede to the thought that my kids should not have it better than I did.

    An old piece of iron - C1A1

    My serial number on my FN from Cornwallis in 1983 was 0L0608. I remember the first time that my MCpl asked me for the SN, the second day of the course.

    An old piece of iron - C1A1

    As a smaller statured member, I had stuffed squirrel right cheek every time I came off the range with the FN. But the grin on the left side of my face compensated.

    Replacing the Subs

    I know SFA in this niche and have learned more in the last two hours than in the last 30 years. It always seemed to me that subs had an advantage based on the greater range of their torpedoes vs an ASW component. I appreciate the insight.

    Replacing the Subs

    Yeah, but that would have led to fights in the outhouse over the Eaton's catalogue, the smaller the pictures, the less abrasive it was.
