Federal Defence Spending

/ 97.3 The Eagle
              Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan says Canadians expect their government to look after the Armed Forces, regardless of the price tag. The Liberals announced today Canada will increase annual defence spending by almost 14-billion dollars over the next decade. Sajjan describes the plan as being focused on necessary outputs and capabilities in order to ensure Canada is strong at home, secure within North America and able to meet its international responsibilities. The plan is to add various military capabilities, such as the ability to conduct offensive cyberattacks, the purchase of armed drones and the addition of five-thousand full and part-time troops.
