Collaborative approach required for National Defence

•Taking care of the women and men in uniform goes beyond giving them equipment and training. It means ensuring they and their families are well supported. •Security and defence require an approach that rises above our political differences for the common safety and security of our nation. •I want to emphasize the importance of working productively with all Parliamentarians on issues related to the defence file. I call on my parliamentary critics, James Bezan, Randall Garrison, and Michel Boudrias, as well as Defence Committee members, to do the same.

Opinion|By Harjit Sajjan
In 2017, our government will continue to build upon the work we’ve done over the past year to ensure our women and men in uniform have the support, training, and equipment they need to ensure that Canada and Canadians are safe at home and abroad.
