If it saves you a few bucks to balance the budget, it's all good, right?

Fake parts used in Canada's C-130s; warnings of catastrophic failure issued; Stephen Harper does nothing.

Kinda throws water on the whole let's rebuild the army thing, doesn't it?

Documents show the Canadian military has known about the bogus electronic chips in the giant Hercules C-130J aircraft since at least July 2012, but continued to hide the fact during a CBC News investigation months later.

The military continues to fly the new Hercs with the fake parts, and says it still has no immediate plans to replace them.
Failure of the parts could leave Canadian military pilots flying blind, potentially in a combat zone, with no information on altitude, speed, location, fuel supply, engine performance or warning messages.
