I saw Harper's interview on this matter. He was smiling the whole time, looked quite pleased about the incident. It was great timing for him, as he is about to spend some money on new Canadian fighter planes. Our military needs new equipment anyways, but the timing of this was almost too perfect.

I just read this report which may throw some light on the background of the latest events.

I think this happens quite a bit more than
we hear about which really makes it more
of a routine.

But the real question is:

What do those Russian Bears do
when they get to the edge of
air space and nobody is there
to greet them???

From the article:

Yet how real is Canada’s sabre rattling, and to what extent is there a commercial element behind the raising of the stakes? After all, Canada’s CF-18 fleet is due for replacement (it is 30 years old) and now is the time for a lucrative arms deal to acquire the USA’s F-35 Lightning fifth generation Stealth fighter.

Harper looked absolutely giddy about the whole interception.

They have been doing this for years, it's just a game they play, if it was anything more they would be sending more than just a couple of old bombers.

why would anyone want to mess with canada? canada should only start to worry if lets say african nations get fed up with starving and try to take your wildlife by force. you better give us your bears and moose or else.
