I'll bet someone out there is still laughing at how they pulled a good one over the eyes of Canadians.
Seems to me that the shippers should have been able to monitor the transport of these containers quite easily.
I wonder how this Montreal firm was chosen to do this job ??

Oh, I don't think you need someone from the west to oversee the shipping. You could probably find a few newfies that could do a very good job, especially if you found a few newfies that had worked out west and then retired back to newfie land.
As for me I'm busy working making money so that we can send the easterners Equaluzation payments for this year. Let's see, last year, we sent Ont $2.2 B, Quebec $ 8.6 B, whew, lots of cash for so few westerners carrying the can. This year they'll want more, so gotta get to work, it's going to be a cold winter and they don't like the dark!!!

This is a TAO-Typical Afghan Operation or is that TCA?

I bet they didn't want any Canadian military equipment. Tools & tents & tires are useful items. WWI rifles not so much.

No, as usual all talk no action. Let someone else do the heavy lifting. Or jobs that you do not have the balls to do I might add.

But as usual you do not disappoint me or others. Now run off.
