    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    I have always thought for simple things like trucks, Canada should buy the exact same truck as the USA is buying because we could tag a few trucks on to the order and Canada could save a pile of cash. Bigger orders come with cheaper per unit price. Air craft and ships, a lot of countries are...
