Canada's military well-equipped
Winnipeg Sun
I welcome the recent call from Sun Media's parliamentary bureau chief, David Akin, for Canada's defence spending record to become an election issue this fall. As defence minister, I would gladly put the Conservative record up against the sad legacy left by the Liberals. Our government has made significant investments since 2006, increasing National Defence spending from $14.5 billion in 2005-06 to $20.1 billion in 2014-15 on a cash basis.

Providing real comfort to injured vets
Sarnia This Week
Back in 2006, when Canadian soldiers were returning home from tours of duty in Afghanistan with both physical and psychological injuries, a small group of quilters in Edmonton decided to honour these veterans by doing what they did best. Making colourful, high quality, warm quilts for the returning vets. Nearly ten years later, Quilts of Valour is still going strong with numerous quilting groups spread out across the country, making quilts replete with Canadian symbols, messages of thanks and eloquent designs as a tribute to our injured soldiers.

Defense Department's tech investing signals Silicon Valley's importance in cyber-warfare
Phys.org
As more conflicts shift from land to cyberspace, the nation's defense agencies are relying less on missiles and tanks and more on Silicon Valley technology entrepreneurs and start-ups to secure the country's porous Internet battlefield. In one of the most overt displays of the federal government's growing dependence on Silicon Valley, the Department of Defense recently announced it will start providing venture capital funding to valley start-ups that can help the Pentagon develop more advanced cyber-security and intelligence systems to fend off nation states and hackers targeting everything from top-secret military correspondence to public power grids.
