[Photos] Day of action to #droptheF35deal
On Monday, Defence Minister Anita Anand announced the Liberal government has contracted U.S.-aircraft maker Lockheed Martin for 88 F-35 stealth fighters for $19-billion. The cost over the life of the program will reach at least $70-billion.
Check out these photos of people doing awesome things to oppose the F-35 across Canada. Peace groups held a day of action last weekend to “Drop the F-35 Deal.”

There are several other urgent needs that have been stated. ie. care for the homeless, low income families, health care crisis, food shortage, care of the earth, climate changes, inequality , covid results etc. Then you hear about $19 billion for war jets. What about the respect and value of each person and their needs? A different kind of war ie. nuclear would possibly end life on our planet in the wrong hands of people who don’t really care about others. Every city in every country need to have the less fortunate people cared for. We are always searching for ways to bring peace. Let us continue to work on this effort. Why should we need 88 fighter jets all at once?
