“There’s just no way.
You can’t do it.”
The construction company has been supplying the military for decades and has been awarded contracts worth more than $1 billion since 2014.
Its CEO says he’s not concerned about losing its contracts.
“We’re doing everything we can to keep up with the demand.
We’ve done everything we possibly can,” said Todd Anderson, president of The Canyons Defense, Inc. “There is no way that we’re ever going to stop.”
A few weeks ago, the company’s chief executive, Todd Anderson said the company was preparing to make an announcement that it would keep providing to veterans and their families.
Anderson said the news comes as the country has been rocked by the killing of two soldiers by an Afghan veteran.
He says the company has not lost any money.
“I don’t know that we’ve ever had any trouble.
If you’re going through this, you know it’s a difficult time.
We’re just trying to keep it moving,” Anderson said.”
And if it comes down to the last minute, we’re prepared to do whatever it takes.”
Anderson said he’s working with his team to find a way to continue to provide for veterans.
“Our primary focus is to continue providing quality equipment and services to our Veterans and their Families.
But there’s no question that there are people that need to be looked after more than anything else,” he said.
But a federal appeals court is expected to hear arguments in the case this week.
Anderson says his company is focused on keeping up with demand.
He says he believes that will be a key issue in the long-running legal battle over his company’s contracts with the federal government.
The appeals court ruling means the company is unlikely to be allowed to continue delivering veterans’ equipment and supplies to the military.
In addition to the federal case, the American Civil Liberties Union of B.C. is seeking an injunction that would bar the Canadian government from awarding contracts to The Cannons Defense.
