Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective! (Sometimes I feel like I'm just a bobble-head on the highway of life!)

I was addicted to the hokey pokey, but I turned myself around!

Want a light-armoured vehicle?

Dear Friends: "Let's get things back into Perspective!"
NEW GLASGOW, N.S. -- If you're in the market for a large, tank-like vehicle, the Nova Scotia town of New Glasgow has a deal for you.
The town's police chief says he wants to give away the department's Cougar light-armoured vehicle, which was a gift from the former local MP, Peter MacKay, when he was defence minister.
The 10-tonne vehicle was first used by the Canadian military in the 1970s, but their fleet of Cougars has since been retired, and some were given to other military and police forces.
Cops for Cougars

New Glasgow officials have been trying to off-load the six-wheeled machine for the past six months, admitting it had rarely been used since it arrived four years ago. It was supposed to be used by the police emergency response team, but that unit was recently disbanded.

Halifax Regional Police have shown some interest in the vehicle, but talks are still underway. (Rumour has it that they want to use it next winter as a snow plow!)
