Maybe it’s obvious that Justin Trudeau, like his father Pierre Trudeau, hates our military.
At least he’s honest about it. He told us, before he was prime minister, that he thought our military mission in Iraq was just about macho men showing off, that we’d do better to help Iraqis through the winter, rather than to fight the terrorists who were killing them.
In his very first conversation with Barack Obama after he won the 2015 election, Trudeau blurted out that he was pulling our jets out of that war.
So it shouldn’t be surprising, these three stories of how Trudeau actually treats our brave men and women who serve in our military:
First, about the growing number of homeless veterans.
Second: Did you know that elite soldiers could now lose their special monthly allowance if they are sick or injured for more than 180 days?
And third: He's breaking his campaign promise about veterans' pensions.
Now, contrast that with Trudeau’s generosity in another respect:
The $10.5 million payout to terrorist Omar Khadr, the $31 million doled out to three other accused terrorists, and the ex-Guantanamo Bay prisoner suing Canada for $50 million.
And those are just the payouts we know about...
TONIGHT'S GUESTS: Candice Malcolm talks about Trudeau's behaviour at the Trans-Pacific Partnership meeting, and how it was reported by the international media; then Raheel Raza and I discuss the first legal challenge facing Quebec's law against face coverings.
Then I'll end as I do each year around Remembrance Day, by reading the poem “Tommy Atkins” by Rudyard Kipling.
