    if you're going to buy it from another country I guess at least buy it from the Russians there helicopters are pretty decent. Don't waste your money on Chinese crap. Those things will break down be in the shop more than there in the air. you only have two options for their helicopters either old Cold War error ones that were made from Russia but are inadequate nowadays or buy the ones the Chinese make but the problem is that they don't know how to make them and the critical parts are stolen from other Western countries mainly the US's helicopters. so if you want that technology of a badass helicopter then you might as well stick to the stipulations and by the American ones instead of a knockoff Chinese piece of crap. See that's the problem either you get the good quality helicopters from the US but have to stick to certain stipulations like not sending Hellfire missiles to a drug addicts house or you can go to China which they don't care what you do with it but it's mechanical crap.

    Good on you Mr. President cancel it, only these US lap dog countries like Canada put conditions on what their end customers use it for. This is like you buying a new car and they will only let you drive it to where they let you. They will only let you use it to help their own foreign policies in invading other sovereign nations while your taxpayers pay for their weapons ! At almost $15 million per helicopter this is not really a deal anyways for antiquated Vietnam era technology. China welcomes your money and doubling the amount of helicopters that are better and more modern with faster delivery for the same amount !

    We can fight Islamic Terrorists in Afghanistan but if the Philippines want to fight terrorism in their own country we will not sell them the equipment to do it . Go figure ? They will just buy them from Russia .

    Why are there no comments allowed on the jihadi who knows that Justine Trudeau will give him $$$$$$$$ if he comes to Canada?
    Why does cbc not allow the people who finance their media to comment?
