To our Canadian brethren, what's the latest on this? Haven't heard much as of late, but evidently there's a substantial monetary penalty associated with a contract cancellation.

Not sure, been out of the news for awhile, possibly in the courts? However the money fairy is out flinging buying promises in time for an election https://ottawacitize...zvV5LqFiDpc7LMo

 

 

and apparently the army gets no new money for these vehicles so other nice to haves like an AD system goes to the wayside....

That's OK. If the Liberals win, they'll just reneg on the promise. They won't sign the final paperwork before the election unless they're losing.

Not that I think the Tories will turn on the money tap.
