Changes In Canada

Justin Trudeau is making it obvious from the beginning of his tenure that Canada has a new government.

Immediately he informed Obama that he was pulling Canadian Defense Forces out of the wars in Syria. Since he was no longer risking the loss of aircraft bombing ISIS, he will be withdrawing Canada from the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program, and save a lot of money.

He wants money to start building and/or repairing Canada’s infrastructure. Putting people to work and increasing the real assets of your country – what a concept!

If Canada needs fighter jets for some reason, F-16’s still do the job quite well for any use Canada will have for fighter jets in the foreseeable future, and are literally 1/10th the price of a F-35. Of course, who wants to attack Canada anyhow? The Inuit?

The CDF use their own variant of the F/A-18 and include all of the carrier mods, including the tail hook, useful for operating from their small air defense fields in the Arctic. They like having two engines operating over the oceans, which are their primary patrol areas.
