Let’s Be Honest – Canada Will Wind Up With the F-35, Largely by Default

Posted March 5, 2014 by The Mound of Sound

It may be the biggest military blunder in Canadian history but all signs point to our country succumbing to the F-35, Lockheed’s first-strike, light attack bomber.  Harper, the ultimate stealth politician, is playing a waiting game.   He…
