When it comes to Trudeau’s cabinet picks, many on both sides of the political aisle agreed that he made what seemed like a good choice with Harjit Sajjan as Defence Minister.
But Sajjan gave a speech last week to the left wing group Canada 2020 and while speaking to progressives, he expounded on some of his theories which reminded me of something he said in one of his first interviews.
Do you remember when he said that we should have dealt with ISIS diplomatically before we had to deal with them militarily? That struck me as a bit naive at the time.
And now we’ve heard and seen more in his performance as Defence Minister that leaves me concerned.
While nothing I have to say diminishes the admirable and courageous service that Harjit Sajjan has given our country, I also know that a good foot soldier doesn’t always make a good commander and skill on the battlefield may not translate into the skills needed to be the guy at the top giving the orders.
I review my concerns including hearing Sajjan refer to dealing with “original grievances” to stop groups like ISIS and saying he believes that ISIS and their success is the result of “climate change” and I wonder, admirable skills on the battlefield aside, is he in over his head?
Time will tell, but put me down as concerned.
