increased, but to an extent. not everything the military buys is useful. so if we are to give more money then we should monitor what they are spending it on.

 @9H5JSPPfrom Ontario answered…8mos8MO

Increase drastically. we can not rely on foreign countries to protect us when we will soon enough have to fight for ourselves

 @8TWDTHBConservativefrom Alberta answered…3yrs3Y

Yes, and capabilities in the north need to be prioritized and procurement must be rationalized.

Increasing will have little effect on our ability to defend ourselves. We are still completely dependent upon NATO.

 @9RBQBRRfrom New Brunswick answered…2 days2D

Increase, and reduce involvement of Treasury board to streamline purchasing. Allow military experts to make decisions on purchases not politicians trying to gain votes or favor with local corps causing cost overruns and inferior products.

 @9QZVT44from Ontario answered…1wk1W

Not increase, but be more mindful of their spending. If items are needed, create a production plant in our own country to manufacture them, and give people jobs doing so. We are too reliant on other countries and I feel like we need to be more self sufficient (if the pandemic taught us anything, it’s that we need more production of goods on our own turf)

 @9QTMDJTConservativefrom Ontario answered…2wks2W

The government should increase its military spending. We are too behind on our NATO and UN spending.

 @9QQVM6Kfrom Ontario answered…3wks3W

I lean towards increasing military spending to fulfill Canada's NATO commitments and strengthen our defence, but it's also Important to balance this with funding for essentials like healthcare and education.

 @9NB38VK from Nova Scotia answered…2mos2MO

Security is important but there are many Canadians suffering at the moment. We spend almost nothing on military as it is, so there may be some room to increase spending. However, domestic issues need to take precedents.

 @9N2C77Zfrom Alberta answered…2mos2MO

Our military funding is a joke. Spend more. We have the 2nd best trained troops and some of the worst equipment. SHAME.

 @9MKYHZ7from Alberta answered…2mos2MO

Increase. We need to meet out 2% GDP minimum for NATO membership, and to bolster defenses in the Arctic and in the Pacific

 @9MK9M6TPeople’sfrom Ontario answered…2mos2MO

expenditure on wars should be minimized. instead use the money to upgrade the country and living standards of its people.

 @9MC4BQLfrom Alberta answered…3mos3MO

Considering we just increased our budget, I think we should be fine as long as it's only to replace things and don't use it to kill people for oil or capital interests. Only against any human rights violators.

 @9M3PSVWConservativefrom Ontario answered…3mos3MO

It has the United States as an ally and NATO, which has the strongest military power, so, I would say neither.

 @9M2NVQBfrom Ontario answered…3mos3MO

Increase the hell out of it canada as a country will not survive a third world War without out the help of America

 @9LW5YMCfrom Ontario answered…3mos3MO

We should increase since our military right now is not in good shape so if we get invaded we won't hold the enemy off. However I am a pacifist and want us to be as democratic about it as possible.

 @9KDLZ9Zfrom Saskatchewan answered…5mos5MO

I don’t really know a lot about this but i know the government is not investing equally to important things

 @9JWTCPTfrom Ontario answered…5mos5MO

Millenials & younger are intuned tech competent youths who your missing out on. I wish like the us there was a from high school to Canadian Intelligence. I think Canada needs to remember its a country of freedom for all, take care of our citizens 1st & Reduce immigration and demand more assimilation and investment, lack of appreciation and gratitude bothers Canadians. Make Quebec happy and make french into high school mandatory. Intact include CRT and step up 0tolerance for intolerance or bullying in elementary. MisDis and all media literacy & include the basic mechanics for same…  Read more

Military spending will only be increased when there's a sign of war happening and mustard gas is allowed to be used, but no dangerous chemical gases.

 @9JS7ZXCfrom Alberta answered…6mos6MO

I don't believe in war and the government getting other people to to fight their battles. It's unfair and cowardly.

 @9J4XYKZConservativefrom Alberta answered…6mos6MO

If the citizens and government feel threatened at all by other countries, only then should military spending be increased.

 @9J4FPDXfrom Alberta answered…6mos6MO

As a military wife ,there are more people living in Winnipeg than there are military members do to underfunding the government needs to stop taking from the military’s pockets in peace times because once’s war hits home we will not have any machines or personal to help win the war

 @9J3VYN8from Ontario answered…6mos6MO

I fell like they should increase it if they have a good reason to, but for now it should be fine because of how many countries have canada's back.

 @9HVQQ4Janswered…7mos7MO

I think politics should not be a part of the military, this way they can get things done efficiently. With Human rights observers - more ability to communicate with the chain of command makes ease instead of dis-ease. More ability to get involved and learn other tactics no 4 year privates in the infantry.

 @98P34X7Conservativefrom Manitoba answered…2yrs2Y

The Canadian military needs to increase their military spending by purchasing the best equipment possible. Canada citizens need to serve at least 3 years of service within the military from 18 to 45 years of age in order to be called a citizen of this country.

 @98NWJMKfrom Manitoba answered…2yrs2Y

I think that in order for a person to legally be referred to be a Canadian citizen, they must have served in the military for three years between the ages of 18 and 45.

I feel that we spend an even amount on military and other things I feel we should spend a few more but other than that we have a good military

 @923SFH6from Ontario answered…2yrs2Y

 @8ZM99PRConservativefrom Saskatchewan answered…2yrs2Y

It depends of how much the government would want to fund the military

 @8ZG39VQfrom British Columbia answered…2yrs2Y

Decrease, but spend it on other things, like healthcare, food, accessibility for individuals, housing that's actually affordable, etc

 @8ZFGTW4from Alberta answered…2yrs2Y

Military spending should be consistent and increased when active in a conflict

 @8ZBBF4Mfrom Ontario answered…2yrs2Y

Increase it, on the condition that taxes overall increase so we can properly fund all government programs so we don't have to be reliant on "lowest bidder" tactics which harm public opinion.

 @8Z86RMHfrom Alberta answered…2yrs2Y

The current military spending should stay the same, with exception to an increase for veterans and healthcare for them.

 @8Z6P9KQfrom Saskatchewan answered…2yrs2Y

I’m neutral on this one, but I’m all for increasing it if it directly benefits our troops/forces and overseas missions/assets, so long as those contributing (tax payers) can get a rough list of purchases, and certain civilians can get a more in-depth look at Canadian military efforts (current standard issues, mission goals, tech demonstrations, etc.)

 @8Z5HGGDfrom Ontario answered…2yrs2Y

Depending on certain times, there would be either a need to increase or decrease military spending.

 @8Z47B79from Ontario answered…2yrs2Y

Buy the right thing. You're paying for studies to guide you, but they are totally ignore. The SAR fixe wing is a good example.
