CANADIAN ARMY CHRISTMAS

PA

This Xmas Troops Hope for New Tanks, LAVs Under the Tree

One thing that distinguishes this Christmas is that it's the first one in almost a decade that "fighting" soldiers haven't spent it in Afghanistan. There's some apprehension among our military that Canada is in danger of reverting to the past, when peacekeeping was the prime role of our military. Will Canada get new, updated, replacement equipment? Unlikely.
