I know I'm jumping the gun here but is this an example of GWB mafia diplomacy, or only half a story?

Now, I don’t think Canada needs the Typhoon to replace its CF-18’s, the Super Hornet, Gripen or Rafale are much better options. Personally I think they should go with the F/A-18E/F Block II, its a substantially better aircraft than the C/D version and its reasonably priced.

Good news and bad news, folks. The good news is that the government is splurging like mad on aircraft.
The bad news is...it's Chinooks and Antonovs. Or at least so I heard. Hooray for not walking everywhere!
My choices would be.
The $8.1-billion procurement package announced Thursday at this air force base that is the hub for the Canadian military, includes plans to purchase four new strategic aircraft and an additional 17 tactical-lift planes.

I read a report on here a few months ago that by 2018 or so the RCAF wanted to have UCAVs in service along with whatever new fighters they planned to buy to replace their early model Hornets.
