Well this cannot be good news for us Canucks, Canada has ordered a fleet of these F35' to replace our current fleet of Hornets.
So I understand that if and when we take delivery of the new fighters the old ones will be DE-commissioned after the fact.
The problem is that Canada needs interceptors and dog fighters not stealth fighters that cannot out maneuver an invading jet in our territory.
We are not capable of bombing anyone, with the huge amount of our Landscape its basically impossible to just protect our own country let alone bombing the crap out of other Countries. We got sucked into going to Afghanistan and we had to rent German tanks and pay to have them flown in to the war theater. What I am trying to say is we don't "have a pot to piss in" and yet we are buying these jets that are useless for our needs in Canada.
Interesting thread and no insults intended in my post, I posted from the top left "Heart".

Australia has repurchased 72 of these lemons for a total of $24 Billion.
ABC Report: Australians manipulated over jet sales.
It seems Australia's allies are more concerned with ripping us off, than interested in forming an impenetrable alliance.
I tell you what Lockheed-Martin, just send us 200 FA/18's with the latest tech and we'll call it even. Make it 300.
