IT’S OFTEN SAID that a person’s true priorities only come through when you look at how they spend their money.
The same is true of governments.
So that’s a pretty big priority for them.
Up here in Canada, we’d like to think honouring our veterans is one of our true priorities – especially around this time of year.
We certainly know how to make a show of Remembrance Day, and rightfully so.
But a look at our federal government spending on Veterans Affairs Canada paints a different picture.
