Canada may cancel F18 deal

Fri May 19, 2017 12:06 am

Canadian government makes a non-subtle hint that they may cancel purchase of F18's over CSeries spat.

F35's are next to the chopping bloc if the NAFTA talks go south ...

Let them walk. Better to lose out on a Hornet deal than fight with the C Series for 20+ years after illegally being propped up.

And so continues the Liberal Government's preference for political games over military capability.

well, following your kind of thinking the 777x shall have no market outside the US, as it was illegally propped up. Or one could argue that the C-Series just needed that government support, because Boeing used illegal dumping on 737s to block market entry.... an so on.
As long Boeing doesn´t pay you, you should be happy that the Canadian Taxpayers are willing to subsidize your seat in a comfy, advanced aircraft ....

Good. The decision to purchase 'interim' Super Hornets never made any sense anyways:
