Trudeau Fails NATO

Cheryl Gallant, MP is calling on the federal government to stop wasting taxpayer dollars on useless studies and get on with the business of defending Canada’s interests at home and abroad.

Stop the Posting Allowance Tax

Stop the Posting Allowance Tax on Military Families

I joined debate on Budget 2018 in Parliament today with a speech calling on Canadians to take action to fight a new tax on military families. The government, desperate for cash, has begun to tax the posting allowance given to members of the Canadian Forces when they are relocated. When the women and men serving in […]

MP Cheryl Gallant Joins Veterans ‘Left In The Cold’ Protest

Today I joined Canadian Veterans on Parliament Hill who have been ‘left in the cold’ by the Trudeau government. The Liberals have repeatedly shown they cannot be trusted to address the issues affecting veterans. They have not honoured the promises they made to veterans during the 2015 election campaign. Trudeau promised Canadians if they voted for […]

Stolen Valour: Defence Minister Must Resign

I joined my Conservative colleagues in demanding the Prime Minister fire his Defence Minister for lying about his service record, and for defending the largest cuts to the defence budget since the end of WWII. Repeated to me over the weekend in Petawawa is that honourable soldiers have a term for comrades, who embellish their service records. […]

Reverse the Canadian Armed Forces Pay Clawback Decision

I am demanding the Federal Government stop clawing back soldiers’ danger pay. Before soldiers are sent on future missions, this policy decision needs to be resolved. Liberals have no problem borrowing billions to give away to other countries for global warming, but they undervalue the women and men serving in uniform. When will the defence […]
