    Couple of things I'd like to see in the CF:
    -An up-armoured version of the G-Wagen, the ones we currently have are way to vulnerable to IEDs
    -Attack helicopters, we can't rely on American air power forever
    -An increase of regular personnel to something between 100 000 and 150 000
    -A larger navy
    -A true airborne force (i.e. an airborne regiment)
    -More soldiers based in the Canadian North

    MP Mark Holland of Pickering-Ajax held a vote, or wanted to, to make sure that when we buy a new ship, we name it HMCS Ajax, after HMS Ajax which fought in the Battle of river Plate in WWII. Emailed him saying that he should focus on making sure we actually get a new ship first. No reply.

    I know, I know some of these things will never happen before WW3. I guess the government can't see what's the best for the country. *Sighs*

    Ok maybe not for the country but for the military and the troops. And they'll get my vote if they put more on the military

    they need to focus on retaining the people they have and making the CF a more atractive long term career choice then
