Cornwall ON – The Harper government is now going after Veterans. Not happy just picking on Census takers they seem bent on depriving veterans of care and support when they truly need it most.
With minimum public attention, there seems a plan afoot to curb, cut or even eliminate Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC), which has been sort of a comfort blanket — even umbilical cord — for many Second World War and Korean veterans in old age.
Veterans Affairs Minister Jean-Pierre Blackburn has confirmed that downsizing is being discussed, but just how is unclear.
That’s what really bugs me about some politicians. You say one thing, and then your actions don’t support that. You can’t hug the flag and yack about supporting the troops and then cut the rug under then when they need our support the most!
Wonder how many new Fighter’s it would take to put the funding in to take care of those that have given so much to our country?
Veteran’s Affairs are something that will always be needed. It’s time we Canadians stood up for our needs and rights. I mean where does it end? Medicare? Culture? Now our Veterans?
What do you think Canada? Are you one of the relatives of one of the 150,000 + vets that still need our support? You can post your comments below.
