The West Block: June 26, 2022 | Taking stock of Canada’s NORAD spending promises

From Global News.

In an interview on this week’s edition of "The West Block," Chief of the Defence Staff Gen. Wayne Eyre said he isn’t clear where the money to implement promised upgrades to NORAD continental defence systems is coming from. Defence Minister Anita Anand had said a promised $4.9-billion upgrade would come from new money, before correcting that the money was part of $8 billion in new spending promised in the last federal budget.

Plus, in an interview with our host, former Conservative Senate leader Marjory LeBreton said that Conservative leadership candidates jumping on the “grievance brigade” is doing a “disservice” not only to the party but to the country. LeBreton – who served as a spokesperson for Stephen Harper and later his right hand in the Senate during the Senate expense scandal – said she fears the party may not be able to hold together.
