I have been harshly critical of The Honourable Harit Sajjan; not of him, personally, but rather of his (and others’) choice to serve in a government that is, I believe, anathema to many of the things in which he claims to have believed.
But, now,according to a report by Murray Brewster in the Ottawa Citizen, we all, Conservatives, too, owe Minister Sajjan a big BZ for seeking some unmanned aircraft ~ there are various types all mistakenly, by the media, lumped together as “drones” ~ for the Canadian Forces.
We used unmanned aircraft in Afghanistan …
… and we have Canadians serving with the Royal Australian Air Force keeping the UAV skills alive …
… it is past time that we equipped our own armed forces with these important tools.
So: Well done, Minister Sajjan!
