DND: Military’s ‘values’ shape ‘Canada’s identity’

“The problem is that Canadians have an anti-military attitude. We’re not very good about recognizing our military historically, it seems to me, except in wartime. And obviously that rubs this government the wrong way. And obviously it rubs the military the wrong way. And it seems to me quite a good idea to try to enhance the place of the military in society.”
