Maclean’s on the Hill: Life, death, fighter jets and Bruce Carson

  1. Canada only has two options when it comes to Fighter jets.

    1. Buy them from the United States
    2. Make them ourselves.

    One simply needs to see what Russia is up to lately to understand why we need to purchase something local. As for making them ourselves…….not going to happen. The Canadians who have the expertise required, are ALREADY working at Boeing, Litton, etc.
