general natynczyk

A question for my military and ex-military friends…








Do you think that Natynczyk should or shouldn’t fully or partially reimburse the government for using military aircraft for personal purposes?

Some of these flights were to attend armed forces appreciation events, and some were not (like the Caribbean holiday).

CTV has reported that Gen. Natynczyk has spent nearly $1.5-million since 2008 flying on the Challengers to professional hockey and football events celebrating the Forces, to fundraisers for soldiers and to St. Martin for the Caribbean holiday.

For instance, figures released by the Defence Department indicate it cost $23,231.30 to fly the general to Toronto from Ottawa in January, 2009, to attend a Canadian Forces appreciation night at a Maple Leafs game.

I am truly curious to hear your thoughts on this.
