Canada To Purchase One C-17 More
The purchase comes as opposition MPs criticize the government for failing to spend adequate money on wounded veterans and soldiers battered by mental-health issues.
Sources told the Defence Department is buying the C-17 aircraft with unused money in its budget that must be spent by the end of the fiscal year, otherwise the funds would go into general revenue.
Canada currently has four C-17s which are used by the military to transport military equipment or emergency supplies.
