I will be making an excursion into Canada's nerve center (aka: Ottawa) this week, from the 10th to the 16th of May. Friday and Saturday will be spent geeking it up at the Ottawa Comicon. I will also be spending a day at the Parliament Buildings, likely shouting obscenities to various politicians. On Sunday, May 15th, I will be spending most of the day at the Ottawa Air and Space Museum with some friends who help me moderate the BF4C Facebook group . So, if you see a bunch of weird looking aviation nerds (at least one wearing a tropical shirt) come up and say hello. Just don't get me started on the CP-107 Argus and watch out for Kyle (He's... Uh... Different .) We will also try to fit in a day to scout out the Diefenbunker as a possible BF4C headquarters. So... If you are traveling in one of the eastern provinces and see a grey Dodge Challenger R/T in your rear-view mirror, move aside, because that guy is ON A MISSION.

Before I wade neck-deep into the murky waters of Canada's future defence policy, I would like to make one thing VERY CLEAR: I am not, nor ever have been, a military expert of any kind. My forays into miniature wargaming led to more losses than wins. I am not particularly good at chess. Even my paint-balling skills leave a lot to be desired. Please keep in mind that there is a real possibility that I have no idea what I am talking about. Also, I will attempt to avoid getting into specifics. Doing so would not really help, and bogging things down with numbers would be pointless anyway. While I will attempt to answer the "Key Consultation Questions", I will do so using my own set of guidelines to avoid any wishful thinking or unrealistic expectations. These are: Canada's defence budget will remain fairly modest. While it would be nice to see Canada meet the 2% of GDP target set out by NATO, the chances of that actually happening are slim. Realistic
