Horribly broken priorities.
The Trudeau government has spent tens of millions (which will end up being hundreds of millions or even billions when all long-term costs are added up) on illegal border crossers.
And yet, the military doesn’t have enough money to provide sleeping bags and rucksacks to our Canadian troops.
As I reported yesterday, “In another sign of the chronic underfunding of the Canadian Forces, it turns out that the military has ran out of sleeping bags and rucksacks. As a result, they are ordering soldiers who currently have sleeping bags and rucksacks to return them. Some of the equipment was first issued in 1982. Absurdly, the military is even asking for sleeping bag liners to be returned.”
This is a total disgrace.
The government can’t even give our troops the most basic equipment, and yet they can somehow afford to take tons of taxpayer dollars and spend it on those who have broken into our country illegally.
It’s a totally broken set of priorities.
At this point, it’s no wonder the military is having a tough time meeting their recruiting targets. When people see the government prioritizing illegal border crossers over the equipping of those who defend Canada, why would anyone sign up?
Again, we see that the Trudeau government has a total lack of Patriotism, as they neglect those who serve and respect our country while rewarding those who treat our national borders like a joke.
