Yet it seems the lack of transparency and disclosure with respect to the finances of that Crown corporation compares to those of the former operator, a Texas oil company.

I would suggest that it is not a Metro Vancouver police force.In Delta, we have an excellent city police force. “No call too small” means every call gets addressed, giving residents a feeling of value for their tax dollars. Personal experience has shown that Delta police have a far greater sense of “serving” residents by taking the time to react, respond, offer advice and provide solutions than Surrey RCMP officers, who are rushed off their feet.We may pay more for policing in Delta, but I have no interest in trading our police for a regional force and suggest that Surrey may well be happier with its own city police, even if it costs more.Perry Coleman, DeltaEggs cracked in historyNow that New Westminster has removed the statue of Judge Matthew Begbie , B.C.’s first chief justice, we’d better next change the names of the streets and then cleanse the history books of any characters who actually built the country.After the political correctness forces running amok, there will be no need for history to recall our roots.Tomorrow, the world starts from here on and we haven’t a clue how all the angelic predecessors built a country without confrontation or making any mistakes.

Air Force: We’re not kidding. “Storming Area 51” would be a really bad idea

Climate Hot Air


'Just yesterday we were discussing what I’m still holding out hope turns out to be one of the most widespread pranks in history.Nearly 400,000 people have signed on to a crackpot scheme on Facebook to “storm” Area 51, the top-secret military base located near Groom Lake in Nevada.The guy who actually started it is assuring the authorities it was a joke (and begging not to be arrested) but his followers don’t all seem to agree.The situation is being taken seriously enough that the Air Force actually responded to a question about it.While not coming out and specifically threating to burn all of these people to cinders if they cross the fence, they sure sounded like they were implying it . The following was offered up by Air Force spokeswoman Laura McAndrews. (The Hill) Air Force spokeswoman Laura McAndrews declined to elaborate on specific details.However, she did issue a warning to those who may be serious about a plan to infiltrate the Nevada Air Force base. “[Area 51] is an open training range for the U.S.Air Force, and we would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area where we train American armed forces,” McAndrews told the paper. “The U.S.Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets,” she added.The Air Force stands ready to protect America and its assets . And you can rest assured they have plenty of assets out at Groom Lake.Whether it’s the next generation of stealth fighters being developed or an interstellar cell tower so ET can phone home, they don’t allow anyone in.The other assets they have on hand include both Apache choppers and fighter jets.Depending on how you read the spokeswoman’s rather veiled comments, it’s not hard to imagine that she’s hinting at precisely what I was suggesting yesterday.If one or two people show up and try to sneak in, odds are some guys in an SUV will show up, tackle you, detain you for questioning for a few days and then let you go.But if more people than can be tackled all swarm the place at once from multiple entry points, particularly if it looks like some of them will make it to the airstrip, what do you think they’re going to do?Do you really think they wouldn’t give the order to just start ripping the crowd up with weapons?That’s an awfully big assumption to literally bet your life on.Our Air Force and other military officers take the same oath as most elected officials.They will protect against “all enemies, foreign and domestic.” Don’t become one of those domestic enemies.You won’t like how it ends.For those who are really curious about what Area 51 looks like but don’t want to wind up as a grease stain in the middle of the desert, here’s one of the most recent videos anyone managed to take of the base.A guy and his son scaled their way up to the top of Tikaboo Peak, from which Area 51 can be seen at a great distance.You’re not supposed to climb that mountain, but they managed to not get caught.The guy dragged up a video camera with an extremely powerful zoom lens and start filming.Spoiler alert: He didn’t see any aliens. .

First used Australian fighter jets now flying in Canadian colours, plans underway to extend jet fleet to 2032

Climate USA New Updates

'The first two fighter jets purchased from Australia are now operational and plans are underway to upgrade those and other jets to keep the country’s CF-18 fleet in the air until 2032.The upgrade program, which will include improvements to navigation systems, communications and other systems, and eventually a new series of weapons and other combat enhancements for a smaller number of planes, could cost up to $1.5 billion, said Brig.-Gen. Todd Balfe, the Canadian military’s fighter capability special advisor.The first phase involving navigation and communications improvements will allow 94 fighter jets , which include the 18 used planes from Australia, to meet new regulations to fly in civilian airspace. New weapons and other changes to boost combat capability will be added later to a smaller number of jets as the life of the CF-18 fleet is stretched out to 2032.The jets are expected to keep flying to deal with any gap as the Royal Canadian Air Forces receives 88 new generation fighters at a cost of $19 billion.The department and the minister have decided that’s an efficient and a necessary use of resources \t\t\t \t\t\t “In terms of value for dollar of extending this aircraft out to 2032 and allowing it to achieve operational parity with current threats, the department, the (chief of the defence staff), the (deputy minister) and the minister have decided that’s an efficient and a necessary use of resources,” Balfe explained of the upgrade program.He said the first two of the 18 used Australian F-18 jets are now flying in RCAF colours and the addition of those aircraft will boost the numbers of planes available to 94.“The first two jets entered operational service on the 28th of June, and then the next 16 will come over the next 18 months,” he said.Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan said those extra jets are needed to deal with a “capability gap” as Canada does not have enough fighters to handle its commitments to NATO as well as protecting North America.But Conservative MPs say the capability gap didn’t exist and was concocted by the Liberal government to delay a larger project to buy new jets, a competition that might end up selecting the F-35 stealth fighter the Liberals vowed never to purchase.The Conservatives have argued that it makes more sense to go immediately into the purchase of new jets instead of buying the 18 used Australian planes.In November 2018 the Auditor General’s office issued a report noting that the purchase of the extra aircraft would not fix the fundamental weaknesses with the CF-18 fleet which is the aircraft’s declining combat capability and a shortage of pilots and maintenance personnel.“In our opinion, purchasing interim aircraft does not bring National Defence closer to consistently meeting the new operational requirement introduced in 2016,” the auditor’s report added.The Canadian Forces says it is bringing in new initiatives to boost the numbers of pilots and maintenance staff.\t\tThe bid package for a new fighter jet fleet is expected to be released by the end of this month.Four fighter jets are to be considered. Those include the Lockheed Martin F-35, the Boeing Super Hornet, the Eurofighter Typhoon from Airbus and the Saab Gripen.The first delivery of the jets is expected in the mid-2020s with the full capability available in the early 2030s, according to the Department of National Defence.But there are concerns in industry that the project is geared towards Lockheed Martin’s F-35, which has for years been favoured by the RCAF leadership.Officials with Lockheed Martin’s rivals — Airbus, Boeing and Saab — have voiced concern about how the selection process is set up. There was a report earlier from Reuters that Airbus and Boeing were mulling a withdrawal from the competition if the bid package appears to favour the F-35.dpugliese@postmedia.com Twitter.com/davidpugliese'
