    New Canadian Shipbuilding Strategy

    Rather than commandeer ferries if shit goes down wouldn't we be better served with a fleet of merchant mariner crewed transport ships? In peace time we could use them for supplying Arctic stations and remote villages. Supplying humanitarian aid around the world and ferrying military equipment...

    Ukraine - Superthread

    I think you misunderstand the U.S.'s end game here. Some U.S. government officials don't want Ukraine to win, they want the war to wage on as long as possible because they are beholden to the arms makers. They also don't want Russia to fail completely because then the DND does not have to arm...

    Canada's tanks

    The Mack brochures list most models as U.S. and Euro 3-5 and JP8 capable. I remember the MSVS SMP was also the same. The ones that aren't listed that way are the Cummins powered ones. https://mackdefense.wpenginepowered.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/02/MackDefenseFleetPortfolio2023-1.pdf I don't...

    Canada's tanks

    Besides, the last thing you want is your MBT suddenly deciding to do a regen when your trying not to be detected. 1000F exhaust Temps would make your heat signature worse than the Abrams already is.

    Canada's tanks

    MBTs don't use on-highway engines. They top out around 15 liters. The leopard 2 has a 27 liter engine. You sent me down a rabbit hole of trying to determine the emissions standard of the leopard 2 and I haven't found any mention of emissions on either KMW or MTU websites. Off road...

    Canada's tanks

    It was likely a nice big campaign contribution from the company selling the army jet fuel.

    Replacing the Subs

    I know little but the F35, C17, C130J, and CH147F were bought pretty much off the shelf right? Maybe the procurement people realized Canadianizing everything is a big part of why they can't seem to buy anything on time or on budget.

    Opportunity to update the CC-150 fleet?

    You forgot to apologize for them being built on native land or whatever it is they are saying now

    "Safe" Injection and "Reduced" Harm good for society? Don't think so

    No I didn't, I grew up in Summerside PEI. My only exposure to mental health wings in hospitals was in the Prince County hospital, both the old one and the new one. The old PCH mental health wing looked just like any other wing. The new PCH one was more secure and felt like a mental jail. Neither...

    "Safe" Injection and "Reduced" Harm good for society? Don't think so

    When I think of a mental health bed the only image I get is an asylum type setting. Even mental health wings I have seen in hospitals have an asylum type feel and who is going to want to enter that system. If there are other types than I have not seen them. I have had ocassion to visit people...

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    By the time they get a job offer they'll be 18. Isn't it 2 years now from application to job offer. At least that's what I thought some said up thread.

    "Safe" Injection and "Reduced" Harm good for society? Don't think so

    Fentanyl is changing that I believe. I know people who won't buy from unregulated sources because they are afraid of fentanyl. That includes illegal pot shops that are popping up. There is a native guy here that opened an illegal shop and he keeps getting shut down and re-opening. Those people...

    Cost of housing in Canada

    8 here with 5 boys, pfft to you. $500 a week plus a $2000 side of beef a couple times a year. (Last year the side of beef was $1200)

    Missing Titanic Sub

    Lots of people avoid calling the ambulance because of the cost. My father in-law did multiple times. My wife was visiting him one day when he had an episode and he was so adamant that my wife not call the ambulance that she called me at work asking what to do. He was having trouble breathing...

    Chinese Military,Political and Social Superthread

    Do they though. The last two elections were pretty close, one has to wonder if it wasn't for the Chinese interference would we have a different government.

    The End of the Virtual Land of the Free

    I haven't read the terms and conditions myself but I have heard that when you agree to the tiktok terms of service you allow them access to every device that you use that email address on. Even if tiktok isn't loaded on that device.

    Maritime Coastal Defence Vessels (MCDVs)

    Where did you get those numbers? Stats Can? Media? Stats Can is government, media is bought and paid for. Neither can be trusted. They have both proven that repeatedly. Jobs are plentiful right now but inflation is taking off drastically and will for quite a while. It will drive us into a...

    Maritime Coastal Defence Vessels (MCDVs)

    Trudeau's liberals have taken care of the manning issue. By the time those ships come online and the crews will be needed the economy will be so bad that it will be the best paying job in town for a lot of Canada.

    The RCAF's Next Generation Fighter (CF-188 Replacement)

    Your missing the point. This makes Canadians only get news from sources the GOC has bought and paid for. Totalitarian media control in its infancy.
