Worst. Magazine Blog. Ever.

I'm sorry, but someone has to say it. The new blog system that Paul Wells is on is truly awful. Why is "advansis" in all the URLs? Is that meant to be stealth branding of some kind? Why is the link to Wells' front page a string?

Maclean's has perhaps the pre-eminent Canadian journalist/blogger writing for them and they're burying him. It's sad, really.

Leopard 2s for Canada

Hard to argue with the logic on this one. Leopard 2s are, by all accounts, very good tanks. Even four squadrons' worth will be a significant increase in Canadian land force strength.

The main obstacle to a tank purchase was always the lack of any airlift large enough to move them in. The earlier C-17 deal has solved that.

Whatever their other faults might be, the current government is showing somewhat more wisdom on the whole than their predecessors in the military procurement realm.
