Here is what I really like to know. Is there a German veto over the the use of Canadian Leopard 2 tanks in Ukraine? Funny how the Germans did not object at all when they were used to drive over Islamofascists in Afghanistan? Arguably, even those guys do not loot racoons and washing machines. Does Zelensky not want them because of some tactical reason? Does JT not want to gift some of them for some reason? Are they needed at Gagetown for some important tactical reason? I absolutely get it that what I pay in taxes would not buy even one, but I still thought they were my tanks.

Nothing more expensive than a free boat.
Those are good boats that in the beginning were run by rookies. The most important person in terms of the boat are the Chief of Boat whatever they are called. There were not a lot left at the end of the O-Boat program.

Yes, Upholders are just as good boats as the diesel-electric boats operated by Japan or Taiwan. That they have not necessarily thrived in Canadian service, is down to lack of continuity in RCN culture. If the RCN ever wanted an aircraft carrier with actual jetplanes again, it would be a steep learning curve regardless of how good the boat was.

Yes lots of arms sales comes with "you can't resell agreements". So Canada would have to get German agreement to provide to Ukraine. We only have 82 Leopard IIs according to WIkipedia.

Not a lot to spare if we have to subdue an unruly Alberta under Danielle Smith.

Your quote leaves out some very important context. Trudeau immediately clarified that by saying protests that turned dangerous worried him.

As someone who repeatedly claims to tell the truth, why would you leave out such a critical clarification?

, probably should not send those Leopards to Ukr quite yet.

The Truckers might honk their horns.


In the inquiry, it come out that some of your leadership wanted to use them.

Mike, knowing full well that the quip about the tanks was a joke, can you explain why you would leave that out and try to present it in a way it was never intended?

“How many tanks are you asking for I just wanna ask Anita how many we’ve got on hand,” Mr. Mendicino said in response, referring to Defence Minister Anita Anand.

“I reckon one will do!!” Mr. Lametti replied.

People still get fired for inappropriate jokes.
Imagine cops joking about using tanks to clear a BLM protest

The fact is; not tanks, but military engineers were posited as the solution to moving the truckers after the actual tow truck operators demurred. I shouldn't really say truckers here, because apparently the trucks tended to be farm trucks that would be usually idle that time of year.
