A Promise (election) to the Navy—2nd or 3rd time around????

How many Canadians remember the promise to build new ships for the Navy, it was made by Peter MacKay MP in 2010. I ask now, do you see any new RCN ships.

How many Canadians remember Brian Mulroney promising nuclear submarines. I asked back then, do you see any nuclear boats?

Now in 2015 we are on the brink of another Federal election and I’m wondering if perhaps we will be promised new aircraft carriers this time around. I wonder if I shall be asking the same question, do you see any new carriers?


A Promise (Election) to the Navy???

Posted June 7th 2010
Listening to Peter MacKay announce that the Government plans to spend some $35 Billion Dollars to modernize the Navy I wondered if it was election time again???? Remember an earlier election ploy by the Conservatives some years ago when they (Mulroney) promised to build a fleet of nuclear submarines! do you see any nuclear boats???? So guys don’t get too excited by this latest promise, it will probably never happen.

So folks remember this when the local MP hopefuls come a calling!!!

Promises Promises Promises and Rub a Dub Dub PC’s in a tub.

God Bless and keep reading.
