Canada can have some many specials units:
Workers became WoodCutters.... they work twice as normal...
We got ugly prime minister for intimidation.(enemy asking less than normal in trade and diplomacy)
Canada can have some "Courreurs de Bois", like scoots but they can have a attack of one.
One serious thing Canada can have is the Avro Arrow:
" The Avro Arrow was a revolutionary jet interceptor, designed and built by the A.V. Roe Aircraft company of Canada. The Arrow was a plane of firsts, fly by wire, computer control, integral missile system and capable of MACH 2+. The year was 1958, and the COLD WAR was raging." But the production of the CF-105(avro arrow)was cancelled.... Mainly for one reason... And you can guest:
A recently declassified U.S. Deputy Secretary of Defense memorandum dated June 1, 1960 says:
"Prior to the NSC (National Security Council) paper (December 1958) and following a visit of the President to Canada in July 1958, Canada took the following actions with the understanding that her defense industry depended largely upon the U.S. channelling defense business into Canada; cancelled the CF-105 and related systems contracts; decided to make maximum use of U.S. developed weapons, integrated into NORAD; worked with U.S. toward a fully integrated continental defence."
Some 14,000 employees were fired immediately. Within two months, five superb flying machines and a more powerful sixth, which had been within days of takeoff, were ordered reduced to scrap. Also, 31 others in various stages of assembly, along with all parts, drawings, accessories, blueprints and photographs were ordered destroyed.
Even today, some Canadians are unaware of the aircraft's existence, yet it still ranks as one of the most technically challenging projects ever undertaken in this country.
Canada always get f*uck... But maybe the Senators of Ottawa will win the Stanley Cup.
Just imagine Jean Chretien the animated leader
