Mr. Speaker, our military men and women place their lives on the line every day for this country. I believe they deserve a more truthful answer than that.
Not only has the government neglected to recruit the 5,000 new troops which it promised in the last election, but it has no plans to house them, no capacity to train them, and no equipment to provide them. Our military men and women cannot wait five more years.
Is this just another example of a broken Liberal promise? Why does the Prime Minister not increase the defence budget today?
