    The canadian armed Forces are of their time for recruitment, but their fighters are unfortunately a little less. Today in the Area PolCan, we present to you the new filter Snapchat of the army, and the debate hilarious that followed the announcement of the purchase of the equipment used.

    The opposition is talking about “aircraft corrosion”. The minister of national Defence, Harjit Sajjan, says “have need of these fighter aircraft of any emergency”. In short, Canada has confirmed on Tuesday that it will buy 18 aircraft used in Australia to troubleshoot and get parts to repair the old F-18 of the canadian army.

    This announcement has been the source of many jokes during the question period. The conservative mp Tony Clement started the ball rolling by referring to them as “buckets of bolts are rusty”. His colleague Pierre Paul-Hus has added a layer, asking the government “why buy 18 old bazous waste”.

    The speaker of the House, Geoff Regan, has even had to intervene to restore order in the parliament.


    While the government justified its decision, the canadian armed Forces published at the same time a Snapcode on their Twitter account. In the scanning, users of Snapchat can unlock a special filter allowing them to become a member the moment in a photo. The dream of a life, you know. Or not.

    As one has more free time than you, therefore, there has been amused all afternoon with portraits of Justin Trudeau and Mélanie Joly. “Commit you” they said!
