Canada the peaceful, what utter nonsense

Canada spends 20 billion on arms per year. That is 55 million per day. This is done to open the door for Cdn business. The lie that military creates jobs is well known: for every 1 billion of federal spending in the military industry  11,200 jobs are created. The same investment in clean energy would give 16,800 jobs, in health care 17,200 jobs, and in education 26,700 jobs.  See More Arms, More Enemies by Nadia Kanji in theMay/june 2014 Dominion magazine. Now you can bet that none of those companies who make these armaments like SNC Lavalin’s subsidiary SNC Technologies wants peace do they?
