- Rebuilding our Military
Trost Family

From 2006 to 2015, Stephen Harper and Conservative MPs like me ended the previous Chretien-Martin "decade of darkness" in the Canadian Forces. Before the election of Stephen Harper's Conservative Government, soldiers, sailors and airmen had been under-equipped and their safety was poorly served by the equipment they were asked to use.

We had more to do.

But, once again, the Liberals led by Justin Trudeau are putting Canada's defence and its international defence obligations on the back burner.

This must stop.

As Leader of the Conservative Party and Leader of the Opposition, I will fight any attempt by the Trudeau Government to gut our Armed Forces, and as Prime Minister, I will take concrete steps to ensure our men and women in uniform have the equipment and resources they need to accomplish the missions we assign them and uphold our international commitments to NORAD, NATO and elsewhere.

Canada's defence spending is currently less than 1% of GDP, or 23rd out of the 28 NATO countries. As Prime Minister, I will increase the funds going to the Canadian Forces by $1 billion, year over year, UNTIL they are funded at the NATO average defence spending as a percentage of GDP.

Canada and its men and women in uniform simply cannot afford another Trudeau-inspired decade of darkness.

If - like me - you believe that Canada and it's Armed Forces cannot afford another "decade of darkness," I need your help. Please make a tax-deductible contribution to my campaign, and vote for me in the upcoming Conservative Party leadership election. Your support will help me continue to fight for sensible government policy and legislation and for a Conservative Party that stands for genuine conservative principles. And although the deadline has now passed to join the party to vote in this election, you can still join to take part in policy development, nominations, and other important initiatives in the future.
