New Poll! Finally!

“Canada will buy 65 F-35 air superiority fighter jets for $140 million each. Total cost: $16 billion, including maintenance. How would you spend $16 billion?”

Vote on the right side of the page. It’s fun! And for anyopne who wants to do a little research before they cast their opinion into virtual stone, you can read up on the F-35 on Wikipedia. And there’s an excellent and very¬†critical article in the Toronto Star, here.

  1. I would not spend that kinda of money on fighter planes when the economy and the homelss,hunger are continueing to rise as well as social programs that the harper gov’t continues it task of eliminating programs to assist canadians. This blatant spending on military equipment is so wrong that they ( hapers Gov’t) should be taken to task as Canadians are struggling to get above water and to keep those programs intact and public transit should also be looked at. for further funding to get the bloody traffic (cars) off the road.


  2. I would have actually liked to see money like that go to everyone who wants to go to post secondary education but can’t afford to pay the steep prices! Better educated people will help the whole country in the long run, because the well educated will be the ones one day running the show.
