Trudeau promised Canadians if they voted for […]

MP Cheryl Gallant Speaks in Parliament Against Government Motion During Parliamentary Debate

One of the biggest mistakes this new Government has made in their short time in office has been leaving our troops without the adequate air support the CF-18 Fighter Jets were providing for them.
