Yeah, well Canada's air force consists of what? A dozen used jets and another few dozen used cargo planes and Hercules transports? I pretty much rode in all of them when I was an Air Cadet. It was always such a sad state of affairs particualarly when we looked at all the cool toys the USAF had and the sheer volume of them.
However, now I'm much happier to have universal health coverage over jets any day of the week.
