Juno Beach 2014 – Allons-y.. Canadiens!
The Canadian Army was a volunteer army in the Second World War. 1,000,000 Canadians volunteered from a population of about 11,000,000 Canadians.

The Canadian armed forces back then were much better funded and equipped than now, actually. Our Prime Minister Stephen Harper is a toothless chihuahua, he barks very loud against Russia and ISIL but got nothing real to show.

I don't think people are prepared to pay the taxes to fund large armed forces and it would be difficult to find those volunteers today.

That is true. Unfortunately Russia also knows about that, so Mr. Puding* is not backing down when he sees Stevie the chihuahua** barking and running towards him. Mr. Puding probably just needs to stick out his foot and Stevie the chihuahua would trip over and black out.

I just wish Stevie the chihuahua would stop making so much noise in the world affairs scene... it's embarrassing.

* I'm hoping the KGB would not find out that I make comments about Vladimir if I use "Puding."

** Canadian PM Stephen Harper has a history of calling his opponents by their first names, or worse still, the pet form of their first names. Some Canadians, including me, are offended by that. I sometimes refer our Prime Minister Stephen Harper by the pet form of his first name also. Respect should be earned.
