Brussels

Today I was going to write about a lovely new coffee shop in downtown Kingston. I logged on to my computer, opened the internet and read about 3 bombings in Brussels this morning that have already claimed the lives of 26 people. I could not bare to go on and write about something like coffee on a morning where innocent lives were taking simply because they had the courage to carry out their day.

Canada recently pulled out of Syria, leaving the bombing of ISIS to other countries. I look at what happened to the people of Belgium today and wonder if we have really made the right decision. The act of terror that was carried out this morning is one that has become all to frequent.

Yes, there are many beautiful things that have happened in the world recently and yes Canada has done wondrous things for the refugees fleeing the war torn Syria, but when do we start to be proactive and protect ourselves? All the humanitarian aid in the world will not protect us when ISIS starts to hurt us.

So on the day of the unveiling of the federal budget, I ask you, Mr. Trudeau, in your budget, is there money to protect Canadians?
