Nevermind, they still retained them along with folding wings.
However, Canadian pilots do not practice carrier takeoff and landings, and there's no way in hell any navy would let such unqualified pilots try to land on their carriers. Even in wartime.
It is probably the single biggest step towards making mixed/norad marines a competitive deck though. Pretend that sometime in the 90s the Canadian government ran a pilot training exchange with American naval units.
