FAIL: Trudeau’s New Defence Policy “Forgot” To Include Cost Of Early Warning Radar Upgrades

Government says they don’t know where the money will come from.

A new report from the Canadian Press reveals that the Trudeau government failed to account for the cost of upgrading Canada’s early warning radar systems, which could throw the numbers in the “new defence policy” completely out of whack.

As noted by the CP, “The current network of long-range radars used by Canada and the U.S. to monitor airborne threats was built in the Arctic in the 1980s but is quickly nearing the end of its useful life. The Liberals promised in their recent defence policy that the North Warning System, as it is called, would be upgraded following talks with the U.S. about ways to improve continental security. But while the policy promised an extra $62 billion for the military over the next 20 years and was touted as being fully costed and funded, no money has been earmarked yet for replacing the radar system.”

Fail.

They must have “forgotten.”

You and I both know the Trudeau defence policy is a fraud. The government slashed billions in military spending, then promised more spending over a very long timeline, and almost all of it was promised for after the next election.

Now, the revelation that they forgot (excluded) the cost of the early warning program makes the fraud all the more obvious.

The government is claiming they couldn’t cost out the upgrades since they still have to work with the U.S. on the new final system. Of course, we know that all it takes is adding an estimated budget to give a sense of how much fiscal room is needed. Apparently that was too complicated for the Trudeau government.

Now, some of the “promised increases” for the military could be in even more doubt. The CP points out that “James Fergusson, director of the University of Manitoba’s Centre for Defence and Security Studies, said the North Warning System throws another wrench into the defence policy’s financial works.”

Even worse, the government admits they don’t know where the money will come from.

Pathetic.

Government must cover the cost, and build up our military

In an increasingly dangerous world, we can’t let our early warning radar fall apart. That means the government must pay the cost of upgrading the system. Additionally, the military must be strengthened and built up, and that cost must be paid as well. There is simply no justification for refusing to pay the cost of defending our nation, because the price of failing to do so would be far worse.

And yet, we once again see that Trudeau has chosen not to be honest with the Canadian people, and is trying to get credit for “increasing” military spending without actually increasing it. After all the lies and deception, this isn’t really a surprise anymore.

Trudeau government is not even looking after the basics. Trudeau has his head in the clouds with his own agenda.

Having read this, and having had considerable knowledge of the ‘why’ this system was built and, having considerable experience watching ‘daddy’ do his damnedest to destroy this country and, having watched and listened to this traitor since he became prime minister (caps ignored intentionally) I have no difficulty in suggesting most strongly that this now can be interpreted as nothing less that an act of treason.

Gee, maybe he can dip into all those TRILLIONS of so-called “carbon taxes” that he’s planning to saddle us with…. You know, instead of sending it all to the UN and Soros; maybe he can use it right here in Canada ? Nahhhhh……

It’s amazing how Trudeau can give so much of the taxpayers money away to every other country on the planet but he can’t use the taxpayers money for Canada.
