Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that Harjit Sajjan has his "full confidence", amid a growing controversy over the defence minister's exaggerated claim, that he was the "architect" of a major assault on the Taliban in 2006.  Interim Conservative Leader, Rona Ambrose, accused Sajjan of "stolen valour" for taking credit for the actions of another — and, called on Trudeau to fire him, for dishonouring himself and the military.

Defence Minister, Harjit Sajjan, formally apologized for his "mistake" in describing his role within Operation Medusa during Question Period on Monday.  He said that the statement didn't intend to diminish the great work of the Forces.  Ambrose, said:

How much more does the prime minister need to hear, before he understands, why our men and women in uniform have lost confidence in the minister?

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that Harjit Sajjan has his "full confidence", amid a growing controversy over the defence minister's exaggerated claim, that he was the "architect" of a major assault on the Taliban in 2006.  Interim Conservative Leader, Rona Ambrose, accused Sajjan of "stolen valour" for taking credit for the actions of another — and, called on Trudeau to fire him, for dishonouring himself and the military.

Defence Minister, Harjit Sajjan, formally apologized for his "mistake" in describing his role within Operation Medusa during Question Period on Monday.  He said that the statement didn't intend to diminish the great work of the Forces.  Ambrose, said:

To be honest, I'm not quite sure what to thin about this, in particular.  The bullshit claims made by Harjit, aren't simple mistakes, that one may have confused with actuality…  He — straight-up — lied about his service record.  He's our fucking Minister of Defence — we expect better from somebody in his position — he should know fucking better, as a soldier, as a police officer, and as a defence minister!  Personally, I'd not think it out-of-line, to expect his resignation and/or dismissal as our Minister of Defence.

 

Sajjan's claim in India, to be an "architect" of the Afghan campaign, wasn't the first time in which he'd characterized his role in such a way.  On a regional British Columbia podcast, in July 2015, he said that General Vance considered him to be a central figure.
