I realize that's what you want to make this about. But it isn't what is being questioned.
It's about people who live abroad, work abroad, and really have little to no interest in Canada, except for their dual citizenship.
Who suddenly find themselves up sh!ts creek, and call Canada to save them.
I see this as a matter of national pride. Not only should Canada have an escape capability, we should have the best one. We should rehearse and when emergencies happen, that's when McKay's "training" trip to the cottage on one of the PM private airplanes gets bumped by an operational mission.
Quick!!! Look over there >>>
