Armed Drones to Patrol Canadian Airspace in Future

The Royal Canadian Air Force is hoping to pull the trigger on the purchase of new armed drones within six years after spending nearly two decades weighing different options.

The Canadian Forces has been working since the early 2000s to identify and buy a fleet of UAVs that can conduct surveillance over Canada’s vast territory as well as support military missions abroad.

Canada opened its door to more than 40,000 immigration applicants in January

If the first month of 2019 was any indication, Canada should have no trouble achieving its goal of welcoming one million immigrants by the end of 2021.

January saw the Government of Canada and provinces across the country open the door to more than 40,000 potential applicants through key economic immigration and family sponsorship programs.

The False Promise of the Moderate Democrat

There’s something odd about the self-described moderates and centrists considering a run for president. If “moderation” or “centrism” means holding broadly popular positions otherwise marginalized by extremists in either party, then these prospective candidates don’t quite fit the bill.

‘Beef of the sea’: Canada urged to allow seal harvest for fine dining

A group of B.C. First Nations and commercial fishers is pushing the federal government to relax restrictions on seal hunting, allowing them to harvest seal meat that can be sold to restaurants.

The Pacific Balance Pinniped Society wants to see First Nations along the B.C. coast awarded the ability to kill seals and sea lions for commercial sale.

Ken Pearce, the group’s founder, says he sees a business opportunity in the proposal, as well as an environmental benefit.

US Spy Plane Pilot’s Account Indicates Soviet Russia Tested A ‘Dome Of Light’ Superweapon

Veteran Air Force pilot Robert Hopkins, who is also the author of one of my favorite reference books, The Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker: More Than a Tanker, flew RC-135S Cobra Ball missile tracking planes during the twilight of the Cold War. Cobra Ball was one of America’s most important intelligence-gathering assets as it collected high-fidelity data on adversary ballistic missile tests. The flights were critical to U.S. national security with many missions originating out of the highly remote and windswept Shemya Air Force Base in the Aleutian Island chain and aimed at spying on Russian ballistic missile test launches.
On two of these flights, while monitoring tests of Russia’s SS-20 Saber intermediate-range ballistic missile, Hopkins and his copilot experienced something incredibly bizarre. It was a phenomenon that ended up drawing extreme interest from America’s intelligence community, which thought the RC-135S had encountered a new secret weapon that could alter the strategic balance between the United States and the Soviet Union.
