National Defence Minister Bill Blair announced that Canada will send another $40 million towards war-torn Ukraine, this time as part of Czechia’s initiative to purchase 800,000 artillery shells for the country.

The purchase follows the signing of a defense deal last month involving Canada and Czechia that aims to support Ukraine in their war with Russia that started over two years ago.

“Ukraine has made it very clear to us that they have a desperate need right now for artillery ammunition and that shortage is being felt on the battlefield,” Blair’s statement read

The Defence Minister touted Canada as having stepped up, and said the funding was going towards one of Ukraine’s “most pressing defensive requirements.”

“Now and for the long term, Canada stands with Ukraine,” he added.  

Canada has sent over 13 billion to Ukraine 

Canada has now spent more than $13 billion in funding to Ukraine since February of 2022, including $4 billion in military aid alone. 

Blair also stated on Tuesday that Canada will donate roughly $7.5 million in night vision devices to Ukraine.

CAF men offered tampons 

The Defense Minister isn’t just making sure Ukraine has all the supplies it needs.

In December last year, the federal Liberals mandated that tampon dispensers be installed in every federally regulated bathroom — men’s and women’s – including air force bases. 

A few weeks later, a picture posted by @Vets4FreeCanada went viral after it showed a tampon dispenser ripped down from the wall in one of the bases. 

“Sent to us from [Canadian Forces Base] Trenton. This is a picture of a men’s washroom, think maybe the Troops are tired of being humiliated by the woke nonsense?” the account stated. 

The funding for tampons was included in the Liberals federal budget for 2022. They set aside $100.5 million towards what they said was a badly needed gender identity culture change within the Canadian Armed Forces.
