CANADA'S MILITARY SPENDING FALLING

 Even as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau prepares to defend against U.S. President Donald Trump's demands that Canada invest more in defense, a new NATO report suggests Canadian military spending as a percentage of GDP will fall sharply this year.
Canada is expected to spend an estimated 1.23 per cent of its GDP on defense in 2018 — down from 1.36 per cent last year, says the annual report, which looks at military investments for all member states.
