Canada's hollow military 

Canada's Armed Forces are so underfunded and overstretched that the government's much-lauded budget commitments may not come close to fixing them,documents released to CP suggest . Economic impact assessments filed by all three services paint a picture of a decaying military that is, as the navy commander put it, fast approaching the point of "critical mass in its ability to execute its mission."

The navy is docking ships, the air force is grounding planes and the army may some day be unable to meet overseas commitments without significantly more cash, say the documents, obtained under access to information.

If the Canadians want us to care whether they go along with our foreign policy adventures, they should put themselves in a position to participate.

After the NHL hit the self destruct button this year could their military have been far behind? At least now the Russians and the Canadians have something else in common besides hockey.

Now if we could only get the bear on those stupid Labatt's commercials to hit the self destruct button...

I agree,

I love NHL. and recently I have bought stock in it. Not like real stock on Wall street, but a stock market that is strictly for sports.

You have seen it? Its pretty cool. You buy issues for your favorite teams and you make real money. Not like a fake stock simulator. I cash out Dividends each time the team wins. Also I can sell my team stock when the price goes up.

check it out if something like this interests you.

Hi, I was just out blog surfing for detailed info on self confidence when I ended up on your page. Obviously I ended up a little off base, but I am certainly glad I did. If you wouldn't mind, I would like to post your link on my "favorites" page. Should you ever need it, there is valuable information on my site about self confidence.
