CASR    ~   Canadian  American  Strategic  Review



New  Page  (August 2009)  Viking's Guardian 400 Surveillance/Maritime Patrol/SAR Twin Otter

In  a  time of  economic  crisis,  there is a  powerful  threat  to  Canadian  sovereignty  –  much  greater than religious fanaticism.  This  threat  is  the  gradual  bleeding  away of  the  research,  development and  production  that  underpin  our  security.  Citizens  are  becoming  wary of  politicians  who allow our  nation to become  increasingly  dependent  –  too  often  buying  aircraft  from  foreign countries.
