   The Canadian Armed Forces has ordered its members to return rucksacks and sleeping bag kits so they can be redistributed because of a “shortfall of equipment,” CTV News has learned.
   Although the CAF is denying that the order is related to equipment shortages, on May 30, Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan revealed that the federal government spent $2.3 billion less than planned on new military gear in 2017.  
   Conservative MP and defence critic James Bezan slammed the Liberal government of failing “to    provide the forces with enough kit.”  “This to me is ridiculous,” Bezan said. “If the Liberals can’t get sleeping bags right, how are we (going to) expect them to deliver fighter jets and new ships for our navy?”
