Even though you may think that Trumpís Presidency may have a material negative effect on Canada, that doesnít explain why the expenditure of these particular tax dollars seems to upset you. Why do you care about that, particularly? They arenít your tax dollars. Youíve been in Canada for 40+ years.

So he does it to the tune of minimum of 2 1/5 million so far on the taxpayer dime.
Everything he does is about HIM. He is so stupid he asked for the "Sherman tanks" that haven't been made since WWII.
Its going to cost tax payers a lot more than 2,5 million =

You are right, the amount I quoted was from the parks & recreation fund.

I just hope protestors don't try and stop the tanks, as the media would love photos of protestors in front of tanks. It will be Trump's very own Tiananmen Square moment.

To my knowledge the tanks will be on static display, maybe a few personelle carriers on the move. compared to other military parades around the world this one is going to seem small by comparison with the highlight being the flyby of numerous aircraft. A real military parade =

Democrats are using the two tanks as an excuse. In reality, they're offended that we're celebrating the USA and they're falling into another Trump trap by openly opposing this.
