Well the old adage about buying an old car does not seem to be appropriate for the purchased of Used Fighters from the other side of the world.

The well used Aussie F-16s has been pushed back till 2019 at the earliest? Murray Brewster has an excellent column on this issue.

Meanwhile the Phillipines have cancelled their order for Canadian built attack Helicopters?

I do realise that I am getting older and there are many things I do not understand. One being WHY if we can produce helicopters? did it take so long to replace our helicopters. Also in the interests  of employment WHY not have Bombardier produce a Canadian Fighter Jet? If anyone has an answer please be kind enough to let me know.

PERHAPS Trudeau should check KIJIJI for home purchases:  (L O L )

On the good side of the news Canada’s Olympians have now taken a GOLD Medal in S Korea.
Gabrielle Daleman’s performance guaranteed Canada a gold medal in the team event at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, before Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir even hit the ice.  Well done all Canadian Olympians.

It was nice to read of two Canadian brothers, supporting one another in their chosen careers. One in the RCN and the other an Olympic Athlete. Bravo Zulu to the Dehaitre brothers.

Brothers Rene and Vincent De Haître represent Canada in their own unique ways, yet they also offer strong support to each other as they pursue their individual goals, even if they are a world apart.
Vincent, a world class long track speed skater, will compete in the PyeongChang Olympic Gamesthis month in both the 1,500 and 1,000-metre races on February 13 and 23 respectively, and Rene hopes to graduate from the Canadian Forces Leadership and Recruit School in St. Jean, Que, on February 22.

A good Canadian Story: https://ml-fd.caf-fac.ca/en/2018/01/9509

Be safe folks and please support our Military, our Veterans and their families.
