Ah, yes. "Good enough.". Probably not the best usage of the Russian saying, " 'Perfect' is the enemy of Good enough.'"

OK so here is what I have for a New Canadian Army SP Howitzer Regiment.

613 personnel total in three firing batteries, a service support battery, and a regimental HQ. Each firing battery has 8 M109A3 SP howitzers and 8 L16 81mm mortars.

I would encourage you to read up a bit on the employment of howitzers and the employment of mortars as they are very different. You will need to manage your ammunition very carefully. The guns and mortars will go through ammo very quickly and you will need to make sure that you have the right type of projectile with the correct propellant and the right fuze at the same time. Also remember to use your survey troop because if you don’t have spot-on location and directional control you will be off. Artillery and mortars use mils instead of degrees – 6,400 mils in a circle instead of 360 degrees.

Your SP Howitzer regiment does not include fire support teams, nor does it include counter-battery radars.

Now that we’ve been through an infantry battalion, an armor regiment, and an artillery regiment, the ROD is turning the development and documentation of other units over to you. We are here as a resource for you if you have any questions or need any assistance, but the ball is now in your court.

Canadian Armed Forces HQ, Ottawa.

(Chief of the Defense Staff): "Well Gentlemen this is a rather...unexpected event to happen, a Pair of ROD ships visiting Karma-naskis, do we know the exact class of those ships?"

(CSIS official): "From their own Website, the Fenris is a Iowa Class Battleship, and the Wolverine is...a Ohio Class Ballistic Missile Sub."

(The whole Council broke into a cold sweet over the later).

(Admiral Kirk): "I-I can't Imagine what would happen if Karma-naskis figures out how to build and employ such classes of ships and this close to home, and using ROD's tactics."

(Chief of the Defense Staff): "Ok Gentlemen please calm down, we have no idea what is happening at the moment right now, the RCNs Pacific fleet will survey this event from a good distance once the ROD ships arrive in a couple days last thing we want is to ruin relations with the ROD even further, as they have helped us with our forces."

The grenadier battalion looks pretty good. That's a lot of grenade launchers! I must reiterate that clearing fortified positions is something that every infantry unit is (or should be) trained to do. In fact, many different kinds of units are trained to do it. I did it as an artilleryman. Not sure if that is the unit's purpose or not, but I'd hate for you to have an infantry battalion sitting around waiting for a mission that fits their specialty profile when they could be out stacking bodies in other ways.

That is the Grenadiers role to clear out fortified positions with explosives, they are supported by the Light Infantry regiments during any deployment as required under the New Canadian Army's Combat Doctrine.

Parliament Hill, Ottawa Ontario.
The New Canadian House of Commons is in a meeting to go over the issue of Cannabis Legalization in the Country.

(Speaker of the House): "Honorable Minister of Health"

(Minister of Health): "Mr Speaker, as of this date Health Canada has not found any scientific evidence suggesting that Cannabis has any Medical applications what so ever, so why should it be made legal when it has nothing to offer to Canadians."
(Clapping)

(Speaker of the House): "Honorable Premier of British Columbia."

(Premier of British Columbia): "Mr Speaker I totally concur with the Minister of Health on Cannabis as it has cause nothing but breathing problems to the citizens of Victoria, who live near the land border with the nation of Karma-naskis, this plant will still pose a health risk as such it must stay out of the country."
(Clapping)

(Speaker of the House): "Honorable Prime Minister"

(Prime Minister): "Mr Speaker, while i do concur with the two members over this matter, but the fact is that smuggling of Cannabis is rife in Vancouver Island right now, and the nation of Karma-Naskis has done nothing to stop it, if Cannabis is made legal it should reduce the problems of smuggling in the country."
(Booing).

(Speaker of the House): "Order in the House please."

(Minister of Health): "Prime Minister, I object to legalizing it, as we do not know if it safe for use in the country, even if it was legal, What can we use this plant for? Surely not for general medicine that's for damn sure."
(Laughing)

(Energy Minister): "How about renewable energy? Like that will ever happen."
(Laughing)

(Speaker of the House): "Can we have order in the House of Commons please, Thank You. It appears that this discussion on Cannabis Legalization in New Canada has gone nowhere, this matter should be put on indefinite hold until we find a better solution to the problem."
(Clapping)

This is UCBC News The National, here is Dale Mansbridge.

"Good evening, Yesterday a RCN Patrol encountered a joint training exercise between the ships of both ROD and the KDF just off the coast of Vancouver Island, this event sparked fears among the Canadian Armed Forces of the possibility of Karma-naskis employing ROD style tactics, which could pose a future threat to the southern end of Vancouver island, which includes British Columbia's capital of Victoria and the major RCN base at Esquimualt."

"In Victoria BC Today, (Shows Demonstrators shouting "Maple Leaf not Marijuana Leaf".), A small gathering of demonstrators wearing gas masks marched at the Karma-naskis consulate building in BCs capital, demanding that Karma-naskis end the production of the plant substance Marijuana, due to the poor air quality that the city has experienced in recent years, and effects from the pot smoke are present in the population, such effects according to Health Canada include, Impaired Judgment, Hallucinations, Euphoria, Nausea and Vomiting, anyone traveling to Victoria must wear some form of breathing apparatus to protect themselves from exposure to the pot smoke."

A consular spokesperson asked for comment by the UCBC News replied.

"The excess hot air emanating from Ottawa is the source of the Impaired Judgment, Hallucinations, Euphoria, Nausea and Vomiting we are seeing in New Canada at the moment".
