Modern Canada Has No Right To Celebrate Vimy Ridge

By Author: Craig Read

Canada does not have the right to celebrate Vimy Ridge Easter weekend 1917. In fact Vimy Ridge and other military victories are anathema to what, apparently, the socialist state of Canada stands for. According to the media, the chattering nomenclatura, and the educational systems, the reigning ethos of Canadian society is post-modern multi-‘cult’-ism. Nothing matters, all ideas and cultures are the same, and military strength and defense are to be eschewed for genuflecting at the UN and allow minority cultures to dictate our foreign and domestic policy. In short we should hate our own history. Why then do these hypocrites celebrate Vimy?

What right does a country have to celebrate the victory at Vimy Ridge when it has 19.000 fighting men – about ¼ of the size of the tax office? The current military budget of $15 billion is the same as the combined budgets of the tax office [$4 billion] and Indian ‘Affairs’ [$11 billion]. The tax office has 60.000 odd personnel meaning that each worker gets paid on average $60.000. Not bad. There are less than 2 million ‘Indians’ in Canada meaning that each one receives almost $50.000 per head. Not bad.

Yet what is more important to civilization? Guilt money given to chiefs to mismanage their ‘bands’ and pay themselves enormous tax free salaries? Tax office staff dreaming up ever more complicated and arcane rules to take people’s money? Or a vibrant military to defend our nation state and support important alliances and obligations?

The military has 55.000 men in total with only 19.000 combat capable. The overhead to fighting ration is almost 2:1 meaning that the fighting part of the Canadian army is too small by a factor of 4. If you have a small force of 19.000 you can only launch a maximum of 5.000 personnel overseas for various assignments. Even this number mandates that you project your military as cheaply as possible.

The $15 billion military budget only comes out to $272.000 per person. This seems high but it isn’t. Equipment, munitions, arms, training, camps, pensions, hospitals, planes, tanks, ships, aircraft, fuel costs, uniforms and sundry other items make this amount almost trivial. The US military spends about $450 billion to support 1 million troops. This is about 2 times the Canadian level and even this is too low. Yes that is right the Americans don’t spend enough on the military. The Americans need to double their military spend and double the number of combat troops available for overseas duty. They have the same problems as the Canadians, and need to redress them very quickly.

Canada, is a country of 30 million people, with a GDP of U$1.2 Trillion and the military spend should be a minimum of 2.5% of GDP or about $30 billion. To have hard power and consequence in world affairs Canada needs to double its military spend overnight just to support its current paltry military projection capability and have enough equipment to properly transport and support its troops.

To be a truly effective projectionable force, the Canadians would have to triple military spend to make up for years of de-funding and neglect. Once the military budget gets to $50 billion then the Canadians would be able to triple the number of frontline troops and provide adequate equipment and training. A $50 billion military budget would support a total of about 110.000 troops which is what a country like Canada should already have.
