    People can own whatever home they want to have and can afford. My comments earlier in the thread were more aimed at developers not really building anything that I actually want. The choice here seems to be condo, townhouse or mansion. Only the mansions have an actual yard. The 1500ft 2...

    Australian navy's hunt for new sub to replace Collins class

    I find the poor reviews of the Tiger AH from Australia interesting. I own a book written by a French Helicopter Pilot who flew the Tiger in Libya, Mali and the Ivory Coast. He had very good reviews of the Tiger and its performance in combat. I wonder if the issues have more to do with...

    Great Britain Offers to help Canada defend its Arctic (CBC)

    My take is that this is a not so subtle message to "either step up or we are going to do it for you and you won't like how we necessarily do it". Ironically this pressure has historically had the greatest effect on Canadian Defence spending.

    I see this a lot in Victoria. People want a flashy car and a big house. I've got some friends like this who are Navy. They make a good salary but really don't have two pennies to rub together. Having a wife that sells mortgages gives me some insight in to who has money and who is a...

    I don't really think families need any of those things, the real estate industry has cleverly convinced them that they want them. They've been aided and abetted by politicians and policy makers who give developers favorable zoning conditions.

    The problem is they don't build houses like this anymore. I've been looking for a house in the 1200ft-1500ft range but there are none available. It's either buy a condo or buy a 3000ft square home on a tiny plot of land. I always find this peculiar. Why people want such big houses on such...

    I just wanted to comment on this as I found it very funny. My Father-in-Law is a Steel Worker. He has worked in three different Countries for multiple companies in many different industrial settings. He has worked his way up from the floor all the way to Management. The people that are part...

    Replacing the Subs

    The problem with this comparison is it fails to take in to account the significant advances in technology that have taken place since that time. A Diesel Sub's only advantage is it is somewhat quieter in specific situations. It is considerably weaker in every other category and it's not even...

    Replacing the Subs

    I would say they are pretty useless defensively as well given how quickly the water depth drops off in the Pacific. The Upholders were designed for the GIUK Gap which is shallow water. The West Coast of North America is Nuke Country.

    Replacing the Subs

    Pretty much. Not having an AOR basically limits our Navy's ability to get anywhere. We can limp across the Pacific if our Allies feel like giving us gas which is what happens presently. SSKs, from an actual operational standpoint, are useless to us in the Pacific.

    Hit the nail right on the head! My personal opinion is that Canadian politics and the political spectrum in this Country have shifted to the left. I would classify the Politics of this Country as being Corporate-Socialist in nature. I see a lot of parallels in Canada right now with Peronism...

    The average voter doesn't track any of these issues though. Look where the Liberals are popular.... Major urban centres in Canada. In order to understand the average Liberal voter, you need to put yourself in their shoes. Liberal Policies have been wildly beneficial for them: Massive...
