When the CSA was first created and the Director job was posted in the Globe and Mail newspaper, I applied....I obviously had no qualifications for the job (other than being passionate about Space and wanting to see Canada have a greater role) but I thought it would be neat just to have a rejection least I could say, I tried for the job.....hmmmm...maybe I should apply again......:)

That's unfortunate. It's also unfortunate that MDA has been sold.

"planned sale of MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd.,a Vancouver-based company known as MDA, to Alliant Techsystems (NYSE:ATK) of Minneapolis."

ATK again.. now we know where some of the 4 billion is going

" Investment Canada Act " more like dis-invest..  tax dollars hard at work once again

I expect Mr Laurier Boisvert will be connected to either ATK or MDA in the near term, just a feeling
man has a good record in leadership

I think this shows just how controversial the selling of MDA is. A real shame as Canada has had its space role diluted by this.
