I heard about this as a small boy from an older relative of mine 25 years ago. My memory is horrible but I still remember the conversation because it
seemed a traumatic event almost like a family member had died. I was told we had designed an aircraft that could fly into outerspace. The greatest
achievement of our countries history and that the americans heard about it and walked in and stole it. I remember the look of disbelief and defeat
like our country would never recover. Being too young to understand what I was being told I remember wondering why I was the one being told this and
not the adults in my family. I was never told to keep it a secret but I had the feeling not to talk about it an it was never brought up again. I had
looked into the avro in my teens and read the articles on what happened to the arrow and just assumed what I read was true and never really thought
about it again. I spent a few years in University and never questioned anything I saw on the news or read in text books. I was the opposite of a
conspiracy person until I watched Tower 7 collapse in 2007 never even hearing about it before that moment, my blood ran cold because the wall that
protected me from what was really going on came down as fast as that building did and it scared the living # out of me because I knew there was no
turning back. I felt the same chill when I read the scientists from the arrow ended up at NASA in the apollo program. I haven't had a chance to
research this and it may be just coincidence but if any Canadians were involved in going to the moon we should share some of the credit.
PS- I would like to add that I am pro-American like 99% of Canadians. Just because we don't agree with you on every level doesn't mean we are the
enemy. Your government has made bad decisions and we have bitched about it because we will be the ones standing there with you at the end for those
decisions. We are family, brothers, and if # hits the fan we will be there no matter what, so we have a right to have our say. If you think Canadians
are pusssies you haven't looked at your history. We were fighting and dying in WWII before you. Just because we didnt' fight in Vietnam and Iraq you
forget the past (WW1, WW2) and the present (Afghanistan). Our friends and family have fought and died together and you seem to have forgotten that.
Just because we don't say anything when you bad mouth us doesn't mean it doesn't hurt.
