Speaking at the NATO leaders summit in Madrid, PM Justin Trudeau told the world that the best use of Canadian weapons is just to give them to Ukraine.

“Stocks for the Canadian military will be replenished as quickly as possible,” Trudeau said. “We need to make sure that the women and men of the Canadian Forces have the equipment they need to continue their mission and step up as necessary.”

“We also recognize that the best use, right now, of things like howitzers and sniper rifles and all of the other equipment we’ve been sending to Ukraine — the best use for Canadian security, for geopolitical stability — is to put them in the hands of Ukrainians.”

Trudeau also announced that he would be sending over 39 armoured combat support vehicles, initially built for Canada’s supply-starved military.

“The light armoured vehicles we will be sending over will be extremely effective,” Trudeau said. “We’re just glad to help, and we’re going to continue to look and respond to things that they need.”

In addition, Canada will supply Ukraine with more high-resolution cameras for military-grade drones.

All of this comes right after Trudeau sent another $350 million to Ukraine, which was on top of a $1 billion loan and $75 million for humanitarian assistance for Ukraine and its neighbouring allies.

As for Canada’s military, as part of the Liberal budget unveiled in April, Trudeau decided to only increase military spending by a paltry $100 million in 2022.

Moreover, according to the Canadian Press, an anonymous senior Department of Finance official claimed that the Trudeau government would, at the very least, hit the 1.5 per cent mark at some point in the future. However, the target recommended by NATO is 2 per cent of GDP, representing yet another failure.

Despite this, those at NATO appeared willing to overlook Trudeau’s failures due to his dedication to funding the Ukrainian military while Canada sits practically defenceless.
