• CANADA CANCELS PURCHASE OF ARMORED VEHICLE

    0

    OTTAWA: The Canadian military cancelled plans to purchase Can$2.1-billion worth of combat vehicles, citing budget constraints. The program to purchase 108 of the vehicles was conceived at the height of Canada’s decade-long military involvement in Afghanistan. They were to be larger and more heavily armored than the LAV III vehicles in use at the time, and which provided too little protection against insurgents’ roadside bomb attacks.
