Since the Federal Election I’ve been pretty quiescent. Waiting to see how our new LPC masters will reply to the very real needs of Canada’s military. I had high hopes. Or I was high. Who can tell? In either case I was more than disappointed. The Federal Budget might as well have been titled ‘Screwing the Military’.
Already underfunded by billions of dollars, DND will now face billions in ‘deferred’ spending. Don’t kid yourself, the money is gone. Never going to be spent.
I now face a decision. Do I continue my blog, my writing in Defence issues?
Does anybody in Canada care?
From the level of the ‘Defence’ Minister on down. I see no evidence, none, that anyone really cares.
We will see. But I may no longer be writing about it.
