Canada Has No Enemies, Why Spend 900 Million More Than Last Year to Defend it?
Seriously, who could possibly invade Canada this year? Why are we Canadians spending C$19.1 billion to defend our borders? That is $597 per Canadian. Family of four: $2387.50.
Obviously, Canada doesn't want to end up like WW2 France, Poland or Denmark. The cost of an invasion would be presumably be much higher than $19.1 billion per year. The thing is, as far as I can tell, Canada has no enemies. Sure the Taliban want us out of Afghanistan, but they have no intention of invading Newfoundland or sneaking across the North Pole into Nunavut.
