    This is off topic, sorry. I just heard on TV. The jets Harper blew billions on, don’t even have the enniegs included. They are being built separately. No wonder Harper was ducking and dodging queries. Canada has been a peacekeeping nation, since WW11. Harper has involved Canada in two wars now. Harper also had harsh words for Iran too. We had better get rid of this war monger, before he destroys this entire country. We did have terrorists threats, over Canada’s involvement in Afghanistan.
