The Trudeau Government will be spending an extra $62 billion over the next twenty years on the military. It’ll be spent mainly on equipment such as the ships and fighter-jets…but also to add about 3,500 new personnel.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg praised the announcement saying it affirms Canada’s unwavering commitment to the treaty organization.
