Are you serious?


"Canada's $227-million fleet of mid-shore coast guard vessels are rolling "like crazy" at sea, making crews seasick and keeping some ships in port during weather conditions where they should be able to operate, CBC News has learned."



The Canadian Coast Guard has to stay in port when the seas are rough!

Typical the Libs. are trying to delay repairs until after the election so they can quietly upgrade them if they get back in, or attack the next Gov. for the delay

Is that your final answer to how many Canada built of the new ships?

This procurement has Steven Harper all over it.

Wasn't it sort of McKay's payoff for turning the conservative party over to the reform yahoos?

Who is in charge now and not addressing the flaw in the design?

I believe the flaw in the design was pointed out many years ago.

SO it was already pre-ignored by the Harper government,

How many scandals can the Libs afford in an election year?


Oh dont worry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The Admiral Norman trial will be put off till after the October election!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Or else LIE-berals will very soon declare a MISS TRIAL and then give Norman 10.5 million dollars and take away his passport and



internet access- and refer to him in future a Omar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


After all it looks like LIE-berals will need ALL their lawyers to deal with SNC Lavalin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

POOR STUPID HOID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!


Our CLOSET LIE-beral Curious Cdn was just telling me it is SAD that Cdns no longer know how to build or design warships!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



And HARPER AGREED with Curious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!


The Harper idea was to RESTORE some skill and ability in Cdn ship yards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!


And to modernize some of our operations as well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And in the LIE-beral announcement about the BAE type 26 destroyer contract- LIE-berals have made it clear they expect a LOT OF THE WORK to be done by Cdns!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And now here we have Our idiot Boy trying to drum up ship building jobs for Cdns!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!


Maybe you stupid LIE-berals had better get your stories straight so you dont talk in circles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Canada is sorely lacking in proper maritime preparedness.

Prepare for what, Quebec to be invaded??

OH HOID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


If the design flaw of the ships was KNOWN for many years then why did your LIE-beral pals NOT FIX IT??????????????????????????


Or maybe LIE-berals DID fix the ships- by REMOVING the stabilizers to save on gravy????????????????



Or maybe LIE-berals have a plan to retrofit the ships in the future- as a consolation prize for shipyard workers- you know- a nice little bit of pork barrel politics after LIE-beals kill the destroyer contract that they didnt want anyway???????????????????????????/



Is this the kind of navy LIE-berals desire to build for us????????????????????????


The army trucks that LIE-beral Chretien bought for us were not capable of off road travel- as armies often need and require!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The armoured vehicles that Our idiot Boy has bought the army are prone to engine fires and transmission failures!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Such flaws as stripped transmissions and cracked axles and engine fires are not a big deal if you only expect to parade the machines around once in a while -but for serious military use they sound like a serious PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And why would Our idiot Boy not by LAV 3`s- built right here in Ontari-owe?????????????????????


And LAV 3`s have a nice reliable service record too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


It seems to me that LIE-beals are continuing their long standing policy of ensuring the Cdn military has a many costly and useless weapons as possible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



A lets assume LIE-berals actually DO buy some destroyers some day in the far distant FUTURE?????????????????


Will those destroyers be like the F 18`s Pierre Trudeau purchased- you know the ones WITHOUT BOMB RACKS - so they could not attack anything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



We KNOW LIE-berals despise the military and want to get rid of it -so maybe ensuring the Cdn military is unarmed and ineffective is just the LIE-berals way of making a political statement??????????????????



LIE-berals paid put FIVE HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS IN PENALTIES for the privilege of NOT BUYING helicopters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



What are the odds that if Our idiot Boy is re-elected next October- that his FIRST NEW BILL will kill BOTH Kinder Morgan pipeline AND the new ship purchase as well???????????????????????


I say that if idiot Boy is re-elected then we are guaranteed to be having NO new ships!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



And- if the patrol ship flaw was known then WHY did LIE-berals NOT FIX the ships??????????????


Shall we guess it was for the same reason they did not fix the Phoenix Pay System?????????????????????


Apparently it is easier for LIE-berals to leave things BROKEN and just shrug and blame Harper?????????????


Certainly blaming Harper is CHEAPER than fixing things!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Especially if you are a LIE-beral and do not care if govt gets true value for money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Buying votes for LIE-berals is more important than fixing things anyway!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



How is it that Our VAUNTED civil service union Hogs can design a pay system that works SO BADLY????????????????????


Did the federal Hogs TAKE LESSONS from the Ontari-owe Hogs who are STILL WORKING ON the scandal ridden E-health computer system!!!!!!!!!



And how is it that LIE-berals and Hogs would simply shut off the old pay system and turn on Phoenix??????????????????????


Without any sort of testing or back up plan????????????????????????????


Phoenix was in development when Harper left office.................yet it was Hogs and LIE-berals who decreed IT IS READY- lets use it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And let the chips fall where they may!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Maybe we have the answer as to WHY Our idiot Boy is running such HUGE deficits!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Maybe PHOENIX ATE ALL THAT LIE-BERAL GRAVY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!


And stupid Hogs do not know how to shut the damned thing OFF again???????????????????


So HOID- WHO SHOULD WE BLAME FOR THE FAULTS IN YOUR PERSONAL OPERATING SYSTEM????????????????????????????
