The Harper Administration has made a commitment to spend more than $500 billion (BILLION) over the next ten years on the Department of Defense.

Because most of this expense will be on non-Canadian companies and companies in the US and elsewhere that are committed to one thing – eternal strife – we need to seriously re-evaluate this expenditure.

And when we do, the rewards will be fantastic .  Even if we’re brave enough to cut $20 billion from this budget, we’ll easily cover the lion’s share of what’s recently been pledged by the Harper Administration.

If you need rationale for this argument, I came across this piece which might be of interest . The general thought: The Pentagon shouldn’t be used to create jobs.
