The Canadian Armed Forces certainly mean nothing to you, Mr. Trudeau, but to Canadians and the rest of the world there is a proud history and legacy that means something to everyone else. The fact that they’re totally underfunded in your tenure doesn’t give you the gall to announce their funding will decrease by a billion dollars now. What about your commitment to NATO to increase military spending to two per cent of GDP? Just lies, I guess. Keep giving our borrowed billions away to make batteries.
(Makes meeting our NATO obligations a lot harder.)
MORE WITH LESS
Our Defence Minister Bill Blair says he wants to save a billion dollars on defence spending but says not cutting budget? He says it can cut equipment procurement and they can make do with old equipment! When he was named defence minister I wrote that I thought it was ironic as while safety minister he was responsible for Canada’s gun laws. Now I realize it was planned, as now all guns that were seized or turned in will be given to the military!
(A real cost-cutting measure!)

MORE IN THE POT
What I find interesting is that there is over 500 billion dollars in the CPP account. So why did they raise it not to long ago? Why are they not paying more out to pensioners? The top rate is $1,306 dollars, definitely not enough to live on. Maybe if Alberta has its own pension plan they will give us more money.
(That word “maybe” is doing a lot of heavy lifting here.)
The Sun and its readers need to learn a little bit about how the Canadian parliamentary system actually works. The Speaker of the House is a member of Parliament but NOT a member of the Government. According to the existing rules, the Speaker may invite someone to be present in the Speaker’s Gallery, without being vetted by Parliamentary security. So this Nazi slipped through a loophole in the law. The resulting embarrassment was the Speaker’s fault and his alone. He has resigned. Happy yet?
