So... is this a typo error on the CTV site or am I just having difficulty understanding this statement:

Quote:
The used jets are estimated to cost $471 million to purchase and modify. The government is expected to spend about $3 billion more to modernize the entire fleet, which will be 50 years by 2032.

It looks like math to me. XD

It’s special government math. Incomprehensible to the common man.

If someone bought something old, worn-out, and broken on Kijiji for ten times worth it's actual real-time value we'd call that person either a sucker or an idiot. In this particular case we call that putz the Canadian government. And they're never going to smarten up for as long as this country exists because the stupidity is too well entrenched. :roll:

Not sure who is more to blame as of late. The federal government for buying the jets, or DND for have their heads up their ass to allow it. As much as we'd love to blame everything on the current Libtards, DND has been screwing up procurement and such since the dawn of time.

It's a fact of life that the DND is nothing more than a political punching bag to be used and abused as seen fit by the gov't of the day especially when it comes to saving money. (which usually ends up costing more. Like the 500 million cost vice the 90 million the Aussie's paid for them)

It's a sad state of affairs but I would have hoped that the Minister of National Defense and the CDS could have talked the idiots in power from doing something this wasteful.

But, I suppose those two had better things to do. The Minister of National Defense was likely occupied in Syria single handily wiping out the last of the ISIS fighters and the CDS was probably just to busy in the halls of Parliament securing his cushy gov't retirement job to be bothered with trivial things like this.
