Seventy-four years ago today, Canadian soldiers stormed the beaches of Normandy and pushed back tyranny as part of Operation Overlord.
But today they need to storm the aisles of Canadian Tire because the Liberal government won't procure enough camping equipment for them to do the hard work of defending Canadian values here and abroad.
According to information obtained by CTV News:
A Canadian Forces General Order, or CANFORGEN, was sent to all armed forces members on May 28th commanding them to return the gear so that the military can “redistribute material where it is needed most.” The order will stand, the CANFORGEN read, “until there is no longer a shortfall of equipment.”
The order encompasses two types of rucksacks including one that was first issued in 1982 as well as six-piece sleeping bag systems. Even sleeping bag liners have been recalled.
Sharing sleeping bags and 36 year old backpacks? Outrageous!
I’ve had enough of the Liberal war on our warriors!
