WATCH: Despite Being In Power Almost 3 Years, Trudeau Blames Pilot Recruitment Problems On Harper

Even as the numbers keep dropping under the Trudeau Liberals, Justin refuses to take any responsibility.

In Question Period, Opposition Defence Critic James Bezan ripped the Trudeau government for the failure to recruit new pilots for the Canadian Air Force.

Bezan said it’s not a surprise that people aren’t signing up, considering they would have to fly old fighter jets being purchased from Australia.

While the Conservatives certainly should have done more to build up the Air Force, the fact is that Justin Trudeau has been in power for three years, meaning he has to take responsibility for what is going on under his ‘leadership.’

And what’s going on in the Air Force isn’t good.

As I recently reported, the Air Force is 275 pilots short, and is falling further behind every year as attrition outpaces recruitment.

Part of the problem is that people can see how little the government cares about the Air Force. The Conservatives were at least trying to get new, advanced fighter jets for the military, whereas the Trudeau government is getting terrible hand-me-down planes from Australia. The planes are so bad that they will need expensive upgrades, and the reason Australia is getting rid of them is that they’re actually getting new planes for their pilots.

The Air Force is being treated as an afterthought, and people can see it clearly. Yet, when challenged, Justin Trudeau refused to take responsibility, and tried deflecting all blame onto the Harper government.

Trudeau’s inability to take responsibility for the failures happening under his watch is a pattern we’ve seen the whole time he’s been in power.

The question for Canadians is, why should Justin Trudeau be given any more time in power when all he can do is blame the previous government when something goes wrong?
