Canadian Greens question procurement decisions

In a rather bizarre demonstration that all politics is local, the Head of the Canadian Green Party, most likely not a friend of the military-industrial complex, asked why a non-Canadian company was chosen as the provider of knives to Canadian paratroopers. It was recently decided to start buying Chinese knives over the Grohman Knives made in Canada. Grohman has been a supplier for years to the Canadian military. Most likely the cash strapped forces chose the new supplier based on “best value”.

See the Nova Scotia News for the story.
