And if you really were crazy!?......Shhhh...don't say anything but Nova Bus is for sale....They are shutting their US ops. You can really go all Canadian and put an offer to buy the Nova and have them throw in Provost Car and rights to the Arquus and Mack catalog. Insta Canadian OEM with revenue from the civil side out of the gate.If you wanted to look at it as a pure "Canadian" industrial project. Here is one thought. Use the Colt Canada model. GDLS would be the go to shop for heavy amoured fighting vehicles. LAV, IFV, and tanks. Then I would pick another one for light combat and/or logistics types. Believe it or not I would pick Volvo AB. (not the car company) With that company you would have the largest industrial vehicle manufacturing base in Canada outside of the regular automakers themselves. Volvo also has the largest military vehicle catalog of anyone manufacturing in Canada (outside of GDLS) now. Their catalog includes all of Mack Defence and also Arquus. Their manufacturing plants are the Provost Car and Nova Bus facilites.
