If Canada is made a partner the following will happen.
They will contribute a large sum of tax payer money to help develop the aircraft. In return a portion of the work may be farmed out to build Canadian variants of the aircraft.
The parliament will start screaming that it is taking too much money away from their traumatized health care system and will force the PM to cancel it.
Because of the cancellation of their participation there will be no Canadian built versions and therefore no jobs will come from it, Massive layoffs result in more money going out for unemployment and other aid.
Meanwhile the heavily utilized CF-18 fleet will be getting older and older and less and less reliable.
After several years and deaths because of that fact, the government will eventually purchase a small number of foreign built JSF aircraft. This will be in spite of trying to rig the bidding process so that the aircraft that they cancelled will not win and put a large amount of egg on the faces of the politicians who canceled it in the first place.
The small purchase will cost much more then it would have been if they had stuck with the original plan and there will be no work brought to Canadian aviation workers for building Canadian variants.
off course this is just a fairy tale and never could happen in real life
Excuse me, Don't know what got into me there
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.
