During President Obama’s visit to Canada, Russia decided to probe Canadian air space. The competition for the Artic region of our globe is “heating up.” Canadian fighter planes from Alberta’s Cold Air Range Bases were launched and turned them back into International waters.
It is times like these were, we as Canadians are reminded of the Liberal government’s folly in destroying our military. Now it is up to Prime Minister Harper and his government to attempt to rebuild the armed forces.
It’s more than just a continental shelf, or a patch of ice at risk. The socereignty of our country is being challenged. Our government needs to meet this challenge with more than just angry letters to the Russian Ambassador. We need to take this as a warning to increase the size of our air force and the over-all size of our military.
