Trudeau Sells Out Canada
Over the last few days, I’ve watched the Trudeau government capitulate to the demands of the Trump Administration.
Canadians will be forced to spend more on military in the coming years to appease the Orange Bloat and his whinyness about countries not keeping up with the massive waste happening in the US and elsewhere.
Not one person ever asked ‘shouldn’t the US be spending less instead of everyone else keeping up with the waste?’
Nope … we’ll just do what we’re told.
Canada’s new defence policy today and here are the highlights:
- A 70% increase in defence spending over the next 10 years
- A staggering 62 billion dollar increase over the next 20 years
- An increase in the number of fighter jets to be purchased from 65 (under Harper) to 88
- An increase in personnel in both the regular and reserve forces
The Trudeau Liberals did not campaign on, and have no mandate for, significant increases in the defence budget. There has been no change in the international security environment since their election to justify such astronomical increases. The only change has been the election of Donald Trump.
It turns out Justin Trudeau isn’t so special after all.
