RCAF institutes a foreign pilot project

Dear editor,

No wonder Jason Kenny was taking so long to make changes to the temporary foreign workers program.  The Royal Canadian Air Force was hiring foreign workers.

Yes, the Air Force, which the Conservatives not so long ago renamed, Royal Canadian Air Force, has been hiring foreign pilots to fly in the Royal Canadian Air Force.

Turns out the Conservatives discovered it was cheaper to hire pilots from other countries than to train our own citizens to fly for our Royal Canadian Air Force.

The argument was, the foreign pilots had skills not available in Canada.

Now where have we heard that one before?

How many young people in Canada would like a job in the Royal Canadian Air Force as a pilot?  If you do, check with your M.P. John Duncan and ask him why some one from another country got the job and not you.
