Quotes

Canadian Defence Minister Parliamentary Secretary James Bezan said: "The CC-130 Hercules is a mainstay of the Canadian Armed Forces' transport fleet."
..." Even with victory in sight, the costs of winning the peace remained. Many things were unresolved: "all these things mean that Canadian labour, raw materials, brains and money must be kept working at top pitch."
Asked what the key message in his presentation was, Hadfield said, "The most important thing is to visualize, if your life when perfectly, where would you end up? Then realize that every little decision you make in your life either takes you towards that or away from that."
...I think it has put us in a pretty good position to get this right," Westwood said. "The main benefit of working with key partners and allies is the continual improvement in interoperability ... it's about technology, it's about doctrine, but most of all, it is about relationships."
