Canada’s CF-18’s have been flying since the early 1980’s. Successive governments agree that we need new planes for our Air Force. The problem has been finding agreement about which one to choose.
Trudeau’s Liberals campaigned against buying the F-35’s that the Harper Conservatives had settled on after much research and consultation.
They’re the government now and it is their prerogative to make a different choice.
The problem is, they can’t seem to make one.
Defence Minister Saijan was trotted out recently to make an announcement about fighter jets which was that the Liberals were making arrangements for . . . more consultation.
Watch as I explain why this dithering is a big problem for Canada and our Air Force.
