Canadian military sending upwards of 300 "soldiers" to NL to help in the emergency.

Meanwhile there are 500 Canadian soldiers in Iraq doing absolutely nothing for Canadians.

What a waste of precious manpower.

Your snarky crap aside, I think it's a good idea to send the army to help out in Newfoundland. And I'm glad you're able to snipe from the cheap seats. The only thing worse than being in need of an organized response to help with your problem is having that need and not having it met.

Should have shipped in 300 welfare recipients with shovels instead, woulda been cheaper
That would probably cost us more in healthcare than it would be worth. There are however plenty of laid off oilfield labours live on the east coast that would put the army to shame.
