John Dolan aka The War Nerd joins Dan and Riley to talk about Canada's army - what does it do, what is it for, and what is it REALLY for? We go into the post-Cold War era, procurement shenanigans, and our obsession with "being taken seriously" as a real country. Therefore, we must build terrible ice breakers and have them patrol the Arctic in case someone invades?
In Part II (coming next month), we will be discussing the Trudeau era military and it's decision to procure the F35, arguably the world's greatest plane.
