    Another less than honest excuse article for our failing commitment to meet the 2% GDP number which Canada signed on to back in 2014. While the remark about recruitment is correct perhaps more decent kit would increase interest. Our poor procurement operation is no excuse, it should have been a priority 5 years ago so the forces could efficiently renew badly needed kit. Trump’s quote that Canada will get there quickly (wrt 2% GDP), well as the leading complainer about fake news, he just let out a big fake news story with that quote.

    Analysis: NATO's defence budget formula is flawed — and Canada isn't going to meet its target

    I see that HRH The Princess Royal was amongst a group of leaders overheard laughing at POTUS's expense during a reception at Buck House. Macron, Trudeau Jnr and Merkle were in the group, plus a couple of others who were no named. According to the MSM she also didn't stand alongside HM The Queen and HRH POW to formally receive POTUS & FLOTUS. The Princess Royal is most definitely her fathers daughter, even when her mother gives her the hairy eyeball.

    Not good form but understandable. IMHO Trump will likely get a second term so everything is going downhill and why be nice to a guy that will probably throw you under the bus.
