Maybe Canada should be demoted from G7.

The easy way out for this government is to call an election ASAP.

Canada has near 80 Leopard 2 tanks. 20 are battle ready. Canada has 4 Victoria class submarines. All are drydocked in need of repair. We have dated CF 18 Hornets from 1982. Its time to step up quit sending billions away to other countries when we cant even defend our own.

Shameful. Utterly shameful. It's not even a commitment. It's a commitment to hopefully look at probably being able to possibly make it towards 2% at some point in the next 10 years. Embarrassment.

Canadians are concerned and profoundly disappointed that Canada has no plans to reach 2% of GDP in defense spending.

Trump will help Canada to correct our military spending problem whether we like it or not.

If the Liberals would forget about their Socialistic doctrine and put the money into our defense spending then our Canada will be better off. Maybe release the power and dollars of Canada's O& G sector and we will have more than enough $$ to equip our armed services. Maybe if the politicians had their family put in harms way, then maybe we would see some action.

Spend the money. Canada has been a major participant in every major commonwealth conflict. Canada was amongst the most capable militaries in both world wars. We need to be ready to show our strength as a strong and free nation and defend western values like our 4 fathers did so proudly. Spend the 2 percent and stop sending it to foreign countries we must be ready to defend ourselves and our allies.

2 years Conscription for every male 17 to 20. It has large social positives. In brings our mosaic together in a military brotherhood. Canada should have a really strong military.

Does Bill Blair know he is still alive? Maybe it is just his soul that is dead.
