(#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.
