Mr. Speaker, that is very interesting but that is not what Canadians are saying.
One week ago the Liberals tabled another budget that neglects the needs of the Canadian Forces. On Tuesday the Auditor General blew the whistle on just how ill-prepared our country was to defend our own borders. Today we learn the Liberal government has strangled the military to the point where the navy must now consider cancelling the few coastal patrols remaining.
Why has the Minister of Defence failed so miserably to convince the Prime Minister to keep his promise to adequately fund our military?
