For ages & ages we have had the Province of Quebec wanting to seperate from the rest of Canada. Most do not realize that if it was not for the rest of Canada the Province of Quebec would be in great debt. IT counts on tax money from the richer provinces to support them plus so many count on the maze of Fed Govt jobs they end up in.
A few elections ago one frog political party voter with voice was claiming they wanted their own aircraft carrier & subs. Well we have four mothballed small diesel subs we bought from the UK9 (the UK ordered 20 of them to find the first four were lemons so cancelled, bothballed & sold them to Cdn some yrs later) some years ago. Some say they are in opperation though I sometimes wonder as one cought on fire while underwater from the UK to Cdn. Still the largest ship we have in Canada is a supply ship for a friggin' aircraft carrier with aircraft. Crumbs our troops over in Afghanistan count solely on choppers from other countries to move them or supplies AND in fact the troops transport themselves, on road to often so one reason they are suckers to land mines.
