Canada's former top soldier Rick Hillier lashed out today at U.S. President Donald Trump's trade adviser, calling Peter Navarro an "idiot" for dismissing Canada's contribution to the war on terror as nothing more than an effort to curry favour with the U.S.

"My first reaction, honestly, was, 'What an idiot,'" Hillier told CBC News Network's Power & Politics Tuesday.

"I mean, even if you believe those things, I'm not sure why you would make them, or why you would disrespect the service and sacrifice in this spilling of blood and the loss of lives by Canada's sons and daughters who soldiered alongside our American battle brothers and sisters."
