Yeah, and as a taxpayer, I'd rather my tax money go to fixing infrastructure for all people here than fighter jets used to drop bombs on brown people in the desert.

And also reopening veterans affairs offices and committing money (I forget how much) to PTSD centres of excellence which Trudeau promised to invest in, to help the people who were forced to do the latter under our previous government and then left to suffer with no support when they got back home... which should be reported to the barbaric cultural practices snitch line.

I totally agree!! We need fighter jets tbh but we don't need overpriced fighter jets with questionable performance metrics and capabilities.. A half priced Saab Gripen NG would be suitable for our defense needs. The rest of the money spent on transit development to keep our cities moving seems like a stellar idea to me.

For defence we need better investment in our navy than air force, to be fair.

I still laugh at that snitch line. I mean, not only was it meant to target Muslims, a minority of who engage in those practices (plus they happen in non-Muslim cultures as well), but, if your neighbour, Muslim or not, were going to do an honour killing, wouldn't calling 911 be suffice?

We need to replace our aging F18's with something in the coming decade!.. We do have to play ball with the Americans and Europeans allies when it comes to our Norad/Nato commitments and having no Air Force is not an option lol.. Even Trudeau would admit to that..

I think we should look at a cheaper alternative to the F35 and take the rest we saved on overpriced F35's and invest in other areas of defence.. I'm fine with that money going to naval assets where needed (like supply ships, new Destroyers/Frigates etc).

As for infrastructure development - well we need that too so no time like the present.. Sometimes you have to spend a little money and go into the hole even a bit more to get out of it! The truth is crumbling infrastructure and cities with sub par transit systems don't do as well as what they should! The GTA loses between 7-8 billion dollars a year in productivity because of gridlock and that figure will only increase as time goes on! I'm sure other CAD cities are experiencing similar issues.

That would of been fun, especially with my neighbours. Rumour has it they keep a little furry animal. I hear it wailing sometimes. They must be performing some dark magic on the poor thing.

What I fear this inexperienced dimwit will do is destroy what's left of our economy by racking up $1 billion of debt we can't afford and bring back the useless long gun registry, all the while rapping about the merits of legal weed and a stoned populace who are too high to care.

I guess it could have been worse... We could have elected komrade "Mad Dog" Mulcair.

As for fiscal management take a look at this..

No matter how you add it up, Harper’s fiscal record is a catastrophe

Commenting from South of our long border I have to wonder why Canada bothers with either an Air Force or a Navy. Our Pentagon would gladly supply you with some of ours so long as it kept the gravy train flowing to our favorite contractors. In realistic terns, unless Canada wants to build a bunch of submarines, a surface Navy is little more than, in a world of terminally guided ballistic missiles, floating targets. This applies to our Navy as well.

I suggest you, like we should but won't, concentrate on improving your infrastructure and, if you need to keep shipbuilders in business, your magnificent Coast Guard.
