Canada is like the United States if you drained all the guts out of us and dumped us in a big pile of snow.
As a servile colony of the United Kingdom and its bloated monarchy, the Great White North will go down in history as one of the world’s weakest nations.
Despite enormous natural resources and heroic elements in its history, fighting in World War 2 with a large share of the population, Canada descended back into its shriveled roots, bowing at the altar of big government and worshiping liberal tyranny.
It’s currently led by a failed actor called Justin Trudeau. He’s made it illegal for Canadians – or anyone – to enter or leave the country if they won’t receive the experimental COVID “vaccines.”
One of the funniest – and saddest – stories from the gun control-obsessed country is also now coming out. It turns out these progressives are so incompetent they can’t even arm their own small military. Yes, seriously.
Can You Please Pass That Pistol, Eh Buddy?
Canada’s military has some impressive units, such as their special forces Joint Task Force 2. However, the bulk of the military is firmly enmeshed in woke politics of the kind that is now infecting our own American military.
Meanwhile, the Canadian military is so busy making sure they have the right maternity uniforms and transgender categories on recruitment forms. They’re so focused on making Daddy Trudeau happy that they can’t find a way to arm themselves.
In fact, Canada’s military is still being issued with pistols from World War 2. For over a decade, the military has been trying to navigate the insane, leftist bureaucracy that runs Canada (regardless of the governing party). It, therefore, has not succeeded in getting any new sidearms issued to members of the forces.
Canadian Forces members are currently issued with Browning handguns from the 1940s. They have literally been deployed to combat zones like Afghanistan carrying guns their grandfathers used to shoot at Hitler. I don’t think a 9mm Browning from the 40s is exactly suitable for desert environments and modern combat, do you?
Let’s be fair: it’s not a bad pistol by any means.
However, they’re very old models; they also tend to have glitches and be very hard to fix. If you’re down to your sidearms in a warzone, you need it to work so you don’t die. Why not just update them? The reason, as it turns out, rests in Canada’s insane far-left, bureaucratic nightmare of a government.
Yep, we are a military laughing stock. I stand proud of those serve and have served but Canada's Woke version of armed forces is a joke. Two guys canoeing up and down the coast with a .22 rifle does not a navy make….

Canada’s Government Idiocy
The US military has been using 1980s eras Berettas and those are currently being upgraded as well. The British use Glocks, which were issued to forces as sidearms in 2013. The thing with Canada’s military is they want to change their pistols, but they’ve been unable to do so.
A decade ago, Canada’s Department of Defence offered up a contract to replace the pistols, but it was so full of weird restrictions and rules that cut into profit that gun companies said “no thanks.”
It fell flat with zero bids. Five years later, in 2016, Canada’s government tried again, offering $100 million on a contract, requiring that pistols be delivered before 2036. Companies said no thanks on the eternal contract.
Now, the government says they’re going to arm up by the end of this year. The contracts are currently failing hard after being written with various mistakes. Excuse me while I laugh out loud.
Canada ? LOL , STFU and get the country thriving again . What a joke . Canada use to be respected we can’t even meet our military’s basic needs . FFS ! https://t.co/HwqmkJ1T7l

“Hey, Canada, America Here…”
Liberal Canadians love to say “at least” they’re not American. The moral superiority act seems to come naturally to them. Well, I have some news…
If and when the crap hits the fan, we all know exactly what you Maple Leafs are going to do. You’re going to come running to Uncle Sam and beg our massive and strong military to help you fight off the Chinese or whoever is trying to seize your resources and country.
Maybe if you ask nicely, we’ll say yes. However, please try to at least arm your military. We can’t win a modern war with canoe paddles and a legion of sharp-toothed beavers.
