Tim Hortons in space?

At least this time Canada didn't have to scrap an amazing jet & everything related to it.

Can you cook back bacon in space?

Subby, you're not supposed to talk about the Canadian space agency.

Does Canada know they have a space agency?

Ethiopia has a space agency.

China is light years ahead of Canada in space tech, seems like a good thing.

The Canadian space agency is called NAMSA: National Aeronautics and Maple Syrup Administration.
They have not figured out how to have a Mounted Space Force because the horses won't cooperate in zero g.

What a dumbass.

He'll never get security clearance, and his name will be on public record for criminal proceedings, so good luck getting any other job.

I strongly doubt China is gonna look after him.

Breach of Trust is more like he is being accused of skimming contracts to a company he owned or was paid off by, not spying for China. Handled by the RCMP not CSIS. He was negotiating contracts for installing down link stations in Iceland. Nothing about that is likely to be of interest to anyone beyond the money to be made selling it.

That's some serious small pecker compensation to be attacking chill-ass Canada. Which Caribbean island is their next target?

??  Headline is incorrect.  A CSA engineer corruptly facilitated a deal to help a Chinese business get some contracts for ground stations in Iceland.  This was discovered, investigated and he awaits trial.    By trading on his association, he compromised himself, not the CSA.  At this stage in history it ill behooves any American to point fingers at another country's security institutions after the rot that was introduced to your own over the last administration.  Glass houses and all...

Of course Canada has a space program? For anyone who has ever seen the end of the broadcast day on a network from that country, where they play "Oh Canada", the Canadarm always makes a show.

Fun fact: Albania is set to launch its first (rideshare) cubesat in 2022. A lot of countries can access space nowadays.

At this point, good luck finding something that ISN'T compromised by China.

Chinese money is a significant factor in why we have housing bubbles still growing in BC and Ontario.

Chinese manufacturing is why we are killing our own economy buying everything from China at the cost of domestic business... but not complaining as we do it because the locals facilitating this are getting rich and the consumers get to buy more crap at lower prices faster than they notice the damage to the economy.

Chinese espionage is why we lost Nortel.

Canada has always been leading edge in biological warfare, nuclear science and electronics.

I know we do alot of nuclear and other high tech research up here, but first I've heard of biological warfare. Examples?

Of course they do, subby. They're deeply involved in the Atlantis project.

Smallpox blankets, 1763.  But we British at the time, not yet Canadian.  And we may have been copying the US and thus not 'leading edge'.
