Harjit Singh Sajjan
(#34, 2016) FEDERAL MINISTER OF NATIONAL DEFENCE
Under Fire It’s been a stormy 2017 for Canada’s defence minister. In April, Harjit Sajjan—a former Canadian Forces regimental commander—was forced to apologize for misstating his involvement in a key military action in Afghanistan in 2006. He also got dragged into the bitter Bombardier-Boeing dispute, threatening this fall to cancel the Liberals’ planned order of 18 Super Hornets from Boeing—all the while having to guess what our neighbour next door might do next under its erratic commander-in-chief.
