通过政府的大规模支出是因为政治原因而不是爱国的原因。[段2 ]根据Steven Chase邮报环球的一篇文章，加拿大就在2014的成员国试图增加国防开支对年度经济产出的2%北约盟国的协议；其他以硬目标的军事增加支出（追逐），加拿大和北约成员国政府已经在从美国和英国不断的压力，在强硬的声明说，联盟的标志可以应对危机情况二十八成员同意增加国防开支约占GDP的2%，当他们遇到在9月4日和5, 2014靠近加的夫。对于一个只在军费预算上花费1%美元的加拿大国家来说，这个提议是不可能的，因为加拿大纳税人开始认为这一举动是武断的。美国和英国是国家已投入2%或更多的预算，军队的一些成员。在加拿大的军事预算的增加，因此是仲裁和力量而不是自己的计划和实施，需要有政治动机的盟友（Campion Smith）。
如果没有适当的计划和实施，军费预算增加是浪费金钱和税收。如果按照盟国的承诺增加预算，它只会使加拿大成为盟友的妥协语言。现在加拿大不能也不应该承诺它不能坚持的东西。[ 1 ]引用“我们同意我们的北约盟友，重要的是要继续 增加国防开支，我们致力于这样做，”首相的发言人杰森麦克唐纳德在一封电子邮件中说，在2014年9月3日 。
The massive spending by Government is because of political reasons rather than patriotic reasons.[Para 2] According to an article in The Globe and Mail by Steven Chase, Canada came up with an agreement with NATO allies in 2014 where the member states try to increase the spending on defence to about 2 percent of the yearly economic output; other than taking a hard target for increasing the expenditures on military (Chase).The Government of Canada and other members of NATO have been in constant pressure from United States and Britain to sign on a stronger statement stating that alliance can reply to crisis situation as twenty eight members agreed to increase defence spending to about 2 percent of GDP when they all met on September 4 and 5, 2014 near Cardiff. For a country like Canada who only spends 1 % on military budgets, this proposal was out of the question as Canadian taxpayers began to see this move as arbitrary. United States and Britain are the few members of NATIO which have devote 2% or more budgets to military. The increase in Canadian military budget was thus a case of arbitration and force rather than its own planning and implementation and entails political motives with the allies (Campion-Smith).
Without proper planning and implementation, budget increases on military are a waste of money and taxes. If budget was to be increased as per the allies’ commitment, it will only lead Canada into a compromise language with the allies. Now Canada cannot and should not commit to something it cannot hold on to. [Quote 1] “We agree with our NATO allies that it is important to continue increasing our defence spending, and we have committed to doing so,” Prime minister’s spokesman Jason MacDonald said in an email on September 3, 2014.
