We need to spend billions of dollars a year on Canada's defence (sarcasm).
On the plus side, not all those dollars are on guns and grenades. Somewhere in Ottawa there is a dude in military uniform reading my blog. Nice to know that if your write about TV, a branch of the Canadian military will read it (presumably under the mistaken belief it is about military secrets). I don't know about you, but I feel safer (sarcasm).
