Diefenbaker

Dear member of parliament,
Canada should not name “things” owned by the Canadian government after a person responsible for the decommissioning of the Avro Arrow. I do not know his political stripe or care but I do know the name Diefenbaker is not worthy of having on a coast guard or military or any machinery except, possibly, an RCMP dog?
If Canada builds something good and then destroys it, that could be named “a Diefenbaker”.
Diefenbaker’s name should not be on a CCG Ice Breaker or anything else built or owned by the federal government of Canada.
Sincerely yours,

P.S. Canada should build its own new fighter aircraft to replace the CF-18.

Dear The Honourable Minister of Defence,
If Canada is going to spend on Defence why not spend the tax dollars here in this country?
We should build our own military aircraft?
How long did it take them to build the Arrow anyway especially since time seems to be a concern for some.
Sincerely yours,

P.S. You may already know this, in case you don’t;
The Avro Canada CF-105 Arrow was a delta-winged interceptor aircraft, designed and built by Avro Aircraft Limited (Canada) in Malton, Ontario, Canada, as the culmination of a design study that began in 1953. Considered to be both an advanced technical and aerodynamic achievement for the Canadian aviation industry, the CF-105 held the promise of Mach 2 speeds at altitudes exceeding 50,000 ft (15,000 m), and was intended to serve as the Royal Canadian Air Force’s primary interceptor in the 1960s and beyond.’
