The Dips want to defund the entire Canadian Armed Forces.
The policy resolution titled “Elimination of the Canadian Armed Forces” was submitted by the party’s Spadina-Fort York Electoral District Association (EDA).
It claims that “in a world with a globalized economy traditional militaries are becoming increasingly unnecessary” and points to other countries like Costa Rica and Iceland which have allegedly “abolished their armies.”
“An NDP government will commit to phasing out the Canadian Armed Forces,” the policy resolution states. “All members of the Canadian Armed Forces will be retrained, at the expense of the federal government, into civil service roles that help expand Canadian, provincial and municipal social services, such as expanded health care, education, community services, public transit and parks.”
This is the type of thing that passes for "intellectual conversation" in Toronto these days. No word on what their plan is if the Russians start mining uranium in the Yukon and leaving an eco-unfriendly mess. Strongly worded letter, probably.
That sound you hear is my eyes rolling.
