And this is a surprise, how? :roll:

It's just another broken promise in a long line of broken promises to the Canadian public, our military and our allies.

$1:
The Liberals' defence policy, which officials had promised would be released before the NATO summit, was expected to lay out a plan for how Canada would start moving in that direction.
Canada currently spends only about one per cent of GDP on defence, which is half NATO's target of two per cent and puts it in the bottom third of allies.

So that means 2019? 2025? 2187? Never?

They're likely waiting to for Trump to go on some bizarre tangent at the MATO summit and go from there policy-wise.

Briefers are already being told to keep their presentations under 5 mins. due to Trump and his goldfish like attention span.

I'd hold off on anything until they can make sure that Trump doesn't give away the entire plan, policy, and secret location of the Monkey Emperor's Tomb to his best pals in Moscow. 8O

Apparently ground-based air defence is back on the menu and expected to be a priority, along with upgrade/replacement of Griffon and Cormorant fleets.

Is that the menu which is over 200 pages and offers 69 variations of Egg & Chips? But zero mention of Ketchup.

In other words lots more talk about things that we have no intention of ever doing. :roll:

True.

Sometimes I think Canada's national motto should be:

"On paper we're a superpower!" :wink:

Yeah I'm not under any illusions here. Don't know about ketchup but it does come with a grain of salt.
